The Royal Opera House is one of the world’s most celebrated theatres and the home of The Royal Ballet, The Royal Opera and The Orchestra of the Royal Opera House. Over one million people come through our doors each year and many more around the UK and globally experience us through touring partnerships, cinema relays, free outdoor screenings, radio, TV and live-streaming.
We are committed to opening up opportunities through over 1,250 schools, community programmes and affordable performances for families, schools, students and more. We also train emerging artists and craftspeople. To make these activities possible, we are a registered charity, receiving donations from those who share our ambitions and public funding via Arts Council England.
