The Royal Opera House is a remarkable institution. Home to The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet, two of the world’s best artistic companies, we offer exceptional performances in a beautiful venue.
As passionate ballet fans we have found that becoming Patrons has been hugely rewarding. As Patrons we have benefitted from an added level of personal service and through this we have met many like-minded people. We have also been able to take advantage of the fabulous catering by hosting dinners for our friends. An all-round positive experience."
