From September, those dining at the Royal Opera House will be able to select menus designed to complement the production they will see on stage.
From Black Swan Bellinis and Italian Prosecco to Spanish tapas and steamed sponge puddings, Royal Opera House Restaurants and Bars have developed a tantalizing selection of menus that will change according what is being performed at the ROH.
Highlights include a selection of Spanish wines and tapas-style menu on offer to accompany performances of Kenneth MacMillan’s Las Hermanas, a work based on Lorca's The House of Bernarda Alba. Las Hermanas is performed in a mixed bill with Concerto and Requiem. A selection of French wines and a luxurious menu have been chosen to complement La bohème, while a menu that includes Greek lamb kofte and mint yoghurt will offer a taste of the Mediterranean to accompany Harrison Birtwistle’s The Minotaur, an opera based on ancient myth and set in Crete.
In the Winter Season, the mixed bill of The Firebird, In the Night and Raymonda Act III will be complemented by a Russian-inspired menu, including blinis with smoked salmon, sponge pudding with autumnal fruits and vodka cocktails.
The menus have been designed to reflect the variety of audiences who attend the performances and suit all budgets. Dining options range from a three-course dinner in the Balconies Restaurant to sandwiches, salads and snacks in the Amphitheatre Bar, with prices from £15 up to £80.
