Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Theatre consultant to the architects from 1995 to 1999. Her responsibilities included increasing the seat count by 100 places to become a 2268 capacity main house, relaying out the auditorium and the seating design; changing the circulation into the auditorium to achieve the increased seat count; integrating the front of house lighting and sound facilities into the auditorium. Anne set out the concept for the new flexible 400 seat Linbury Studio Theatre with two pit lifts and seating towers to achieve sightlines and stage width for dance. In the chorus rehearsal room she designed bespoke music stands and seats.

"I am delighted to be the first to perform a song recital at Glyndebourne in this exciting new concert series ... The warmth of the acoustic in this wonderful house, and perhaps above all, the warmth of the Glyndebourne audience, have always meant so much to me." Felicity Lott
