The Duke of York’s Theatre was built in 1892 and presented mainly plays and Broadway transfers. This included Madame Butterfly in 1900, which was seen by Puccini, who then turned it into in opera. Some other successful productions were Rose in 1980, Death and the Maiden in 1992 and a season of Royal Court classics in 1995.
The theatre is air conditioned and has 2 licensed bars. You can also buy ice cream and soft drinks from the cloakroom. It seats 650 over 3 levels. The back of the Stalls (rows R to U) and the Dress Circle (row F) have their views restricted by overhang from the tiers above. The very ends of rows D to F in the Stalls and rows B and C in the Dress Circle also suffer from sideline views.
The Royal Circle is at street level and there are 2 spaces for wheelchair users in the third row. An adapted toilet can be found at the back of the Royal Circle. The auditorium has a dual channel infra-red sound amplification system for the hard of hearing with 12 headsets.
