In the spirit of the Olympic Games, whose first recorded occurrence dates back nearly 3000 years ago, The Royal Opera house has collaborated with BP and the Olympic Museum in Lausanne to create a unique experience that reflects the important history of the Games. The Olympic Journey: The Story of the Games will not only include artifacts, but will be multi-dimensional, including film, audio, and other rare memorabilia from the tradition?s rich history.

The exhibition will only be on display for two weeks, but promises to provide a unique look at how the Games began, at the athletes whose victories carried nations, as well as hone in on how the Olympics have changed over the years. The showing will act as a journey, beginning in ancient Greece and leading guests through time using a multi-media approach.

For the duration of the event, Britain?s Royal Opera House, which is the city?s major performing arts venue, will house the exhibition. The exhibit will be open from 10 am to 7 pm daily, and is free to the public. In addition to The Olympic Journey, visitors to England during the summer can enjoy The Royal Ballet, the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House and operatic performances. The The Olympic Journey:Story of the Games will run from Saturday July 28 to August 12.
