Annotation

The inhouse chorus of the Rome Opera House (Teatro dell'Opera di Roma) was founded in 1935 by the artistic director at the time, Tullio Serafin, while the opera house itself was originally opened in November 1880. The opera house has undergone several name changes:
1880-1926 : Teatro Costanzi (Costanzi Theatre), after the contractor who built it, Domenico Costanzi (1810-1898)
1926-1946 : Teatro Reale dell'Opera (The Royal Opera House), re-opened on 27 February 1928
1946-present : Teatro dell'Opera
