Watch: What does it mean to be a Friend of Covent Garden?
We asked some of our members why they choose to support the ROH.
There are many reasons why Friends of Covent Garden choose to support us; from the opportunity to get exclusive first glimpses of hotly-anticipated new productions and priority booking, to special events and the opportunity to meet others who share their interest.
What unites them is a commitment to, and passion for, opera and ballet. Our members love to watch performances, but in addition to this they often have a desire to preserve and develop the art forms for future generations. The support that we receive from the Friends of Covent Garden is an invaluable part of the work that we do in this area.
Friends membership is available across a number of levels. Beginning at £50 per year for ROH Insiders (under 30s) and £85 for those over 30. Supporting and Premium memberships offer exclusive events and access.
These Friends of Covent Garden share their stories of why they took up membership and what drives their passion for opera and ballet:
If you’re a Friend, we’d love to hear about your experiences, and why you’ve chosen to support the work of the Royal Opera House.
