Ustinov re-opening on 23rd February
4th January 2008
The Ustinov, Theatre Royal Bath's second space, will officially re-open on Saturday February 23rd 2008, following a £1.5million, 15-month refurbishment.
With a stunning new design by Stirling Prize nominees Haworth Tompkins, the architects of the award-winning egg theatre for children, the Ustinov relaunches in February - a national theatre right in the heart of Bath. With new gallery level seating, vastly improved sightlines, and a new welcoming foyer/bar, the audience will be entering a thrilling, intimate new theatre.
The Ustinov's programme of innovative and adventurous performance, including the Bath International Puppet Festival, means that changes needed to be made to develop the programme and produce more of the work for which the Ustinov has gained a national reputation.
The new Ustinov will officially open with its own brand new production of the award-winning drama Breakfast With Mugabe.
