Inaugurated by King George V in the year 1911, the Royal Opera House (or just ‘Opera House’ as it is called now) boasts a blend of Indian and European architectural/design styles. At one point, it was made into a movie-screening space before witnessing a shutdown in the 90s. The iconic landmark (and its surrounding area), which was under the ownership of the Gondal Royal Family since the early 50s, was revamped under the supervision of the (leadership of conservation) architect Abha Narain Lambah in 2010. Originally conceived by an entertainer from Calcutta (now Kolkata) known as Maurice Bandmann, the Royal Opera House Mumbai was included on the ‘World Monuments Watch (2012)’ in order to spread awareness about its origins and importance, and also to reinstate efforts for preservation.
