Have you ever wanted to come to the opera or ballet with your family but decided against it because of the price of tickets, or because you’re not so sure it's something that your children would enjoy?

If you would like your family to experience opera or ballet in one of the most prestigious and beautiful theatres in the world and don't want to break the bank, why not register for our new family scheme – Welcome Performances for Families.

Thanks to philanthropic support from Gregory and Regina Annenberg Weingarten through the Annenberg Foundation, the Royal Opera House is able to offer families new to the Royal Opera House heavily subsidised tickets for a Royal Opera or Royal Ballet performance on the main stage, a morning of free, fun activities for all ages and a reduced-price menu in our restaurant.

With seat prices from £5 to £20, you can give your family a first-class experience for the price of a cinema ticket.

The next performance is of The Royal Ballet's Rubies and The Royal Opera's Gianni Schicchi in just under a fortnight, on Saturday 1 October at 12.30pm. If you would like to attend please follow this link to sign in or register with the Royal Opera House website

If you have bought tickets to a performance on the main stage here before, our automatic system may not let you proceed, but if you are entirely new to the Royal Opera House, you should receive a confirmation email inviting you to book online within a few days of registration.

If you have any queries, please email
