Another introduction to the rewarding world of philanthropic giving at the Royal Opera House is to attend special fundraising events, or to host your own evening here, as a company or an individual.
Our gala evenings are very special occasions from specially curated evenings like Our Extraordinary World (October 2012), whole house Galas (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, 2011; Don Quixote, September 2013), first night celebrations (Aida, Simon Boccanegra, 2010), wine tasting evenings and others. Tickets for these events include a donation to support the work of the Royal Opera House.
On Wednesday 27 November, The Royal Ballet will present the world premiere of Elizabeth in the Painted Hall of the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich. Choreographed by the acclaimed Will Tuckett (Wind in the Willows, Seven Deadly Sins) with a script by Alasdair Middleton, this intimate and poignant performance will focus on the great loves of Elizabeth I, taken from her own words and those of the men who loved her. It will be performed by Royal Ballet Principal Zenaida Yanowsky, Principal Guest Artist Carlos Acosta, actress Lindsay Duncan, cellist Raphael Wallfisch and baritone Duncan Rock. Limited tickets for the reception, performance and dinner are available at £1,500 per person, which includes a donation to the Royal Opera House Foundation.
