    What has been planned for the Linbury Theatre over Christmas? My family enormously enjoyed 'The Wind in the Willows'.
    A performance of not much more than an hour suits different age groups!

      Hi Ann,

      The Linbury will see a new production staged - The Mad Hatter's T Party. The production is by ZooNation and is a wacky take on Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.

      Thanks,

    Hi,
    Are you going to be staging 'The Nutcracker' this year? I can't wait to take my son. At 7 he's starting to understand the depths of the story.
    Thanks!

    • Ellen West (Head of Online Content) responded on 15 April 2014 at 7:40am

      Dear Suzy

      No Nutcracker this year. Over Christmas we will be performing Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Don Quixote and The Mad Hatter's T Party.

      Best wishes

      Ellen

    I have been coming to Covent Garden since I was ten. My grandson will be nearly 7 by christmas and I would like to bring him to see Alice in Wonderland. Has anyone got an idea about the best seats for a child?

    • Ellen West (Head of Online Content) responded on 17 June 2014 at 4:04pm

      Dear Helen

      How wonderful - it really is a lovely ballet for a first-timer!

      I would say that it would be ideal to sit at the front of the Amphitheatre, in the Stalls or Stalls Circle, in order to be close to the action. We now offer Family Packages, which allow you to book in advance, and also purchase children's tickets for half price:

      http://www.roh.org.uk/packages

      You can buy Stalls sets online, but Amphitheatre Packages can currently only be booked through the Box Office. This is something that we are working to change.

      Best wishes

    Hello

    I walk with a crutch and would love to see Alice In Wonderland this winter,so the stalls would be better for me .what would be the first chance I could secure a seat (time and date of opening booking lines)Ibought the dvd from your shop last weekend whilst at a lunchtime concert.l have to travel from Cornwall.Guide of price would be appreciated

    • Ellen West (Head of Online Content) responded on 3 July 2014 at 9:43am

      Dear Marilyn

      General booking opens for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland at 10am on 15 July, but it might be worth ringing the Box Office (020 7304 4000) ahead of time to get their advice on the best seats for your requirements - they are very helpful and know the auditorium better than we do on the website.

      Here is the seating plan for the Autumn Season, including prices: http://static.roh.org.uk/visit/pdfs/Autumn-2014-SeatingPlan-TicketPrices.pdf

      Hope that you get the ticket you want - it's a wonderful show live!

      Best wishes

    Re Plácido Domingo and Antonio Pappano in conversation, Sunday 12 October, 6pm.
    For those who won't be in London and probably without access to a computer on the day, are there plans to make this conversation available on YouTube for viewing and listening at a later date?

    • Chris Shipman (Content Producer (Social Media and News)) responded on 20 July 2014 at 8:38pm

      Hi Alison,

      Keep an eye on these pages, as any events like these will be communicated on here once confirmed.

      Thanks,

    I am a childhood friend of Beatriz Stix-Brunell's mother since we were both 6 six years old in Colombia where we're both from. I want to see Beatriz perform on stage and would like to know what ballets she will be dancing principal roles so that I can make travel arrangements from Florida to go see her.

    I can see that booking for opera packages starts on September 18th, but when will you set out the package options?

  10. Ann Thomas responded on 3 September 2014 at 11:01am Reply

    Pleas don't go another Christmas without Nutcracker.

    NUTCRACKER is Christmas.
