Last night we met our newly-appointed Royal Opera House Student Ambassadors. This group of like-minded and passionate students will help us shape our student-focused events at Covent Garden, around the UK in cinemas and on their campuses. The scheme will initially run for a year.
Not only are the Ambassadors a talented bunch of people but they have bags of enthusiasm and ideas on how we can move the Student Standby scheme forward and engage with students in general.
The creation of the Student Ambassador scheme is not just a way of helping us reach more people in universities around the UK, but opens a crucial dialogue between the Royal Opera House and our student audience. We want to hear what students have to say and to act upon it. Following their visit to the Royal Opera House for The Royal Ballet's Mixed Bill of Viscera/Infra/Fool's Paradise, we're getting to know the newest members of our Student Standby Team and look forward to them challenging us with new approaches to opera, ballet, music and dance.
It can’t go unsaid that we're sorry we couldn’t take more of you on, as the hundreds of applications we received showed us what a fantastic and passionate audience you are. We're thrilled that so many of you care enough about the art forms and the Royal Opera House to put yourself forward.
We will continue to bring our Extraordinary World to you, as our new Student Ambassadors help us shape the best student scheme we can offer. Here's to an exciting year ahead!
Our Student Standby scheme offers £10 tickets for unsold performances to current students. Sign up to Student Standby.
