Just before Christmas, the audience for Rigoletto were rushed out of the Royal Opera House on the very last chord of Rigoletto, due to what was announced as a fire emergency and turned ot to be a bomb scare.
Earlier last year, in August, the area around the ROH was put on lockdown while a suspicious package was identified.
This week, on Tuesday morning, the ROH was evacuated during rehearsal. Another bomb scare.
Either the threat level has significantly increased, or someone in security is a bit hypersensitive.
