See all the Summer Olympic torches since 1936 and all the Summer Olympic medals from 1896, and imagine yourself in Pierre de Coubertin’s office with a backdrop of the lake in Lausanne as inspiration.
Ruth Mackenzie, London 2012 Festival Director said: The Olympic Journey: The Story of the Games will be a world-class exhibition in the world-class surroundings of the Royal Opera House. As part of the London 2012 Festival, it will offer a once-in-a-lifetime free opportunity to see extraordinary artefacts telling inspirational stories from throughout the history of the Olympic Games right in the heart of London.”
This unique exhibition, a collaboration between The Olympic Museum in Lausanne, the Royal Opera House and BP, celebrates human strength and endeavour, passion, determination, hard work and achievement. It is the only time that this experience will be on display in the UK and promises to be a highlight of the London 2012 Festival.
The Royal Opera House Shop will be transformed throughout The Olympic Journey: The Story of the Games into an official London 2012 Olympic outlet, offering a range of official merchandise.
