The first opera introduces the characters and themes of this epic cycle.
The second opera thrillingly depicts the discovery of a great love.
There are four complete cycles.
You may only buy tickets for all four dates within a cycle. It is not possible to buy a ticket for an individual performance, or to pick and choose dates from different cycles.
Your ticket entitles you to the same seat or standing place for all four operas within the cycle.

Open Up and the Ring Cycle
The performances of the Ring Cycle take place after the Royal Opera House's Open Up project. While the interior of the main auditorium is not being changed, we are changing the signage around the Royal Opera House. Consequently, Ring Cycle tickets (physical and e-ticket) will look slightly different from all other main-stage tickets for performances that take place before the Ring Cycle.
