For a couple of years now, the Royal Opera House has worked with Student Ambassadors such as myself to reach out and connect with those at universities and colleges around the UK. Like the rest of the student body, we're undergrads and post-grads, locals and internationals, long-time aficionados and new fans alike. What binds us together is that we’re students who have a real passion for the amazing opera and ballet experiences that the Royal Opera House provides.
Our main task is to promote the ROH Student Scheme, which offers over 10,000 dedicated Student tickets per Season, at substantially discounted prices. We organize ROH-related events on our individual university campuses; from production screenings in university buildings, to trips to local cinemas to see live cinema relays from Covent Garden. We're also keen to collaborate with dance, music and theatre organizations and societies at universities up and down the country. In essence, we're a one-stop-shop for information on everything the ROH does for students.
If you're a student yourself, finding out more is easy. First of all, simply sign up to the ROH Student Scheme to ensure that you receive student offers by email. Next, find the ROH Student Ambassador at your university - most of us have Ambassador Facebook pages and Twitter accounts where we post the latest ROH information and deals, as well as events specific to our own university. Finally, do get in contact with us to offer your thoughts, ideas and options. We're always on the look out for extra people, whether that's to help with upcoming events, or simply to discuss and share a passion for opera, classical music, ballet, and dance.
If you don't yet have an Ambassador at your university, reach out to any one of us and we'll be more than happy to help add your university to the growing list of UK institutions connected with the ROH.
