Autumn Season production menus 2016/17

Anastasia

The glorious game season is here! Celebrate with wood pigeon and game pâté, pheasant ballotine with calvados sauce, or a hearty saddle of venison with roast winter roots and juniper sauce. Classic apple tart tatin served with lashings of rum-and-raisin cream makes the perfect ending.

Les Contes d’Hoffmann

The Royal Opera House takes pride in using first-rate suppliers of fresh produce. Our rib eye steaks, for instance, are 28-day matured Black Angus beef, and we only ever use native shellfish. For this fantastic opera, why not enjoy lobster thermidor in Balconies Restaurant? Pistachio soufflé makes a suitably luxurious finale.

The Nutcracker

Celebrate your visit to the Royal Opera House with a table in Balconies Restaurant, where our wonderfully light fish options include roast brill with leeks and truffle butter sauce, and lemon sole meuinère served on the bone. For the ballet, pavlovas always seem the right choice of dessert – ours is festively decked with orange and pistachio, plus a dainty tuile and milk crumbs.

Il trovatore

A table in Balconies Restaurant is the ideal accompaniment to this striking production. Join us for elegant seafood such as Portland crab with clementine dressing, and halibut with braised leeks, mussels and saffron sauce. Roast plums with crème fraîche mousseline, marzipan cake and toasted almonds makes a memorable finale.

Der Rosenkavalier

We've chosen classic dishes as the backdrop to this charming operatic comedy. Start with lobster bisque or cured salmon with oscietra caviar and potato blini. Follow with Dover sole meunière on the bone or fillet of lamb with Swiss chard gratin and pearl onions. Still hungry? Apple tart tatin with cinnamon cream provides a suitably classic dessert.

Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg

We have plenty to amuse the palate when you book for Wagner’s comic opera.

There’s fun to be had, too, in puddings of lemon meringue tart and rhubarb-ginger brûlée with pine nuts.
