Curtain up for new Royal Shakespeare theatre

Two of the Royal Shakespeare Company's theatres in Stratford will reopen on Wednesday following a three-and-a-half year re-development project.

The re-vamped Royal Shakespeare Theatre includes a new auditorium with more than 1,000 seats and a colonnade linking it with the Swan Theatre.

The RSC has spent £112m on the redevelopment.

The BBC's Will Gompertz reports.
