Happy Easter from all at the Royal Opera House
Rabbits and chickens on stage and elaborately decorated eggs in the piazza.
There’s an Easter feel around Covent Garden at the moment, with the piazza filled with the eggs created for the Fabergé Big Egg Hunt. The eggstravaganza has seen the 210 uniquely designed eggs, which were placed in public locations around the capital for the duration of the hunt, converging outside the Royal Opera House. The display has turned the already busy piazza into a thronged gallery space. All the eggs are for sale and proceeds will go to help charities Elephant Family and Action for Children.
As well as the sculptures in the piazza, Easter imagery is also reflected on stage at the moment – the Rabbit from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland has delighted audiences and La Fille mal gardée‘s famed dancing chickens will soon return, broadcast live to the world as part of our Cinema season on 16 May.
If you’re stuck for Easter activities over the holidays, why not bring the kids to our Sounding Out events? A range of activities are available including a chance to create music with a composer and make puppets.
Happy Easter from all at the Royal Opera House!
