Completed last year, the new theatre at Nevill Holt within the historic stables (replacing a temporary structure) is the home of Nevill Holt Opera, and the new building has transformed the potential of the young opera company [see my interview with Nicholas Chalmers, artistic director of Nevill Holt Opera, and my review of the production of Mozart's Cosi fan tutte there this year]. Now the theatre has been shortlisted for the 2019 RIBA Stirling Prize.

The new theatre was designed by Stirling Prize winning architects Witherford Watson Mann and theatre designers Sound Space Vision, built by Messenger BCR and supported by the David Ross Foundation. It joins a shortlist which includes London Bridge Station, the Macallan Distillery and Visitor Experience, The Weston at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Cork House and Goldsmith Street (full details from the RIBA website). The announcement of the winner of the 2019 RIBA Stirling Prize will be made on 8 October 2019.
