It's a deafening sound - nearly 2,000 young people aged 8-18 years old clapping, cheering and whooping in appreciation of a Taylor Family Foundation Schools' Matinee performance by The Royal Opera or Royal Ballet.
We're pleased to announce six performances special for schools during the 2013/14 Season: Le nozze di Figaro, The Nutcracker, Carmen, The Sleeping Beauty, a Mixed programme of The Dream/Alastair Marriott's new ballet/The Concert, and La bohème. All of these performances cost just £7.50 a ticket, and schools can also apply for a travel grant.
