The Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, was opened on this day in British history, 18 September 1809. The first theatre had been destroyed by fire in December 1808 and the second theatre would suffer the same fate in 1856. The third iteration of the theatre is now known as the Royal Opera House and the original third construction still functions as the nucleus of the modern opera house.
