The Savoy Theatre has inherited majestic charms from the very point of its origin. The theatre is built on the site where stood the Savoy Palace, the most magnificent nobleman’s townhouse of medieval London. The palace was destroyed in the Peasant’s Revolt and when the present theatre was erected on its site, it was given the name of the Savoy Theatre. Grade II listing is something which was very obvious for this splendid venue that can today host 1150 audiences in its all three levels.
The incredible designs of the theatre have been done by Charles J. Phipps, the man behind many eminent theatres of London. The theatre attained another milestone when it became the first theatre and the only public building in the world those days to be entirely lit by electricity. Listed among one of the grandest West End theatres, Savoy Theatre London is located in the Strand in the City of Westminster London.
It was inaugurated on 10th October 1881 and boasts proudly before the onlookers, its sparkling presence in the entertainment world that goes beyond a century. The venue was built by theatrical impresario Richard D’Oyly Carte initially for hosting the original comic operas of the incredible Gilbert and Sullivan pairing. The theatre has carved a niche for itself in the heart of theatregoers while hosting quality drama, music and operas, ever since its inaugural night.
