The Backstage Tours include an introduction to the colourful history of the theatre, an insight into the redevelopment of the Royal Opera House and a look at aspects of current productions. As the Royal Opera House is a fully working theatre, each tour is a unique experience, and may include opportunities to see The Royal Ballet in class, or the magnificent backstage technology in operation.

Please note: All tours vary according to what is available on the day and a visit to the auditorium is not guaranteed; it is never possible to attend stage rehearsals. Remember that you are visiting a working theatre and plans may change at short notice. Photography is not permitted on backstage tours.

Access: The tour route is fully accessible to wheelchair users. Please advise the Box Office at the time of booking if you have any access requirements. The ROH is a large building and lengthy corridors and stairs may need to be used on the tour route. There is no possibility of seating backstage during a backstage tour.

Tours are not suitable for children under 8 years old.

If booking as a group of 10 or more, please contact the Box Office on +44 (0)20 7304 4002, or +44 (0)20 7304 4000 for individual bookings.
