Royal Albert Hall, London
The Royal Albert Hall was created out of Prince Albert's vision to provide a central hall that would promote the appreciation of the arts and sciences, set in the home of learning, South Kensington. This is also the location of the Science Museum, Victoria & Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum, as Queen Victoria and her consort were advocates of learning. The venue opened in 1871 and since then has held exhibitions and music events to millions of people, most notably hosting the BBC Proms each year. Christmas is also a popular time for the Royal Albert Hall, as it puts on Handel's Messiah each year, as well as carol concerts and other festive events. At other times of the year the venue showcases operas, such as the sell-out production of Madam Butterfly, which drowned the main auditorium to create a Japanese water garden. Popular artists as well as classical performers, jazz acts and comedians have also put on performances at the famous stage.
