Royal Opera Series

The Royal Opera Series is a philanthropic initiative to support the work of The Royal Opera. It offers a special opportunity for those who wish to deepen their knowledge of our opera repertory and discover more about what it means to be an artist with The Royal Opera, how we invest in talent and bring our productions to the stage. Supporters of the Royal Opera Circle will be invited to join The Royal Opera for a series of private events and rehearsals, spanning a broad range of highlights from the Season’s programme.
