We will of course be doing more fantastic pre-show stuff - cheap eats and drinks

Student Insight Events

Throughout the Season we have a selection of Student only Insight events which are linked to each of the Amphitheatre Performances and the Whole House Performance. These have proven incredibly popular so make sure you book early to avoid being left out!

We’re celebrating The Royal Opera’s new production of La bohème with a bohemian-themed night of live music, pop-up performance and discussion.

Student Insights: The revolution will not be televised – oppression, power and knowledge | Crush Room | Monday 26 March 2018 | £10 | Booking opens on 30 January 2018

Under oppression what extremes will you go to? What leads to revolution or ruin? In the midst of a Season celebrating some of history’s great tales of personal and political struggle, we explore the role of poetry and opera in narrating the voices central to this turmoil. This special event features poetry performance, discussion and music from Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, Macbeth and From the House of the Dead.

Student Insights: Ballet and the Body | Linden Studio Theatre (RBS) | Tuesday 10th April | £10 | Booking opens on 30 January 2018

What does ballet require of - and do to - the bodies that practice this most embodied art form? Hear from dancers and different ends of their careers, those who care for them, document them, and think about the future for dancers and the changing shape of ballet. Join us for a lively debate as we examine ballet and the body.
