Welcome Performances

The Royal Opera House welcomes you to the best ballet and opera in the world for next to nothing

Welcome Performances are for families who have never been to a ballet or opera at the Royal Opera House before. You don’t need to know anything about either – just come along and give it a try, and for less than it costs to go to the cinema!

Tickets are only £5–20.

Booking for the next Welcome Performance of The Royal Ballet's Romeo and Juliet opens on Friday 24 July at 9am - please register online to check your eligibility.

If you would like further information, please call us on +44 (0)20 7212 9684 or email

Welcome Performances are generously supported by Gregory and Regina Annenberg Weingarten through the Annenberg Foundation.
