Schools' Matinees

Every year The Taylor Family Foundation Schools’ Matinees programme gives teachers the opportunity to bring their students, aged 8-18, to special matinee performances of six of the season’s Royal Opera House productions.

As an incredible opportunity to introduce young people to the world-class ballet and opera produced by the Royal Opera House, our Schools’ Matinees are hugely popular and reach over 10,000 school children from across the UK each year.

Applications for Autumn/Winter 2014/15 Schools’ Matinees will open in the summer term. Find out more here.
