"Live at Royal Opera House" is an official DVD released by Björk on November 18, 2002. It contains a live performance by Björk on the Vespertine tour, recorded live at the Royal Opera House in London, England on December 7, 2001. It was amongst one of the last of the concerts performed on that tour, and Björk had become the first ever contemporary pop artist to perform in the Royal Opera House. The concert was exclusively premiered on UK television in the launch week of the BBC digital channel BBC Four on March 12, 2002. For the first half of the concert the majority of the songs were taken from her then most recent album "Vespertine", while the second half sees songs played from her previous solo albums. The closing song "It's in Our Hands" (which was then previously unreleased) was later released as the lead-off single from her "Greatest Hits" album. The track "Generous Palmstroke" is a B-side, and appears in a different form on the "Hidden Place" single. Although listed as "Frosti", the first song is actually a music box version of "Pagan Poetry", as it appears on the "Cocoon" single. The DVD (and television broadcast) omits performances of two songs that were performed on the night - "Play Dead" and "Bachelorette". A mini-documentary "Touring Vespertine" is also included as a bonus feature, a working version of what was to become the "Minuscule" DVD. However, the Minuscule documentary does not include some material which is included on "Touring Vespertine", such as the short interviews with composer Simon Lee (who was part of the Vespertine tour).
