It is in these same places that Georg Friedrich Haendel gave the first of many operas or oratorios which it had composed (for more details, to see this). The Queen' S Theater was renamed King' S Theater (Theater of the King) with died of the Reine Anne in 1714. After the building of John Vanbrugh was destroyed by fire in 1790, another Theater of the King was built exactly at the same place.
