The General Rehearsal for The Winter's Tale at 12.30pm on 10 April will now be closed.
Due to the scale and complexity of the new production, the amount of rehearsal time available, and the added pressure of a performance in front of a full house, the creative team have opted for a closed rehearsal to ensure the best possible result for an important, large-scale new production.
Tickets for General Rehearsals are only available to Friends of Covent Garden.
If you hold a ticket for this event you will automatically receive a refund – there is no need to contact the Royal Opera House box office.
The Winter’s Tale runs from 10 April – 8 May 2014. Tickets are still available. The performance on 28 April will be relayed live to cinemas around the world. Find your nearest cinema and sign up to our mailing list.
