Support the future of live performance

Live performance is a shared experience, and our audiences are at the heart of everything we do.  

Each time we are required to close our doors, we lose £3 in every £5 of our income, and the most recent national lockdown means we have had to close to live audiences again.

We are deeply grateful for the significant and vital loan support from Arts Council England and DCMS through the Culture Recovery Fund, but unfortunately the Royal Opera House cannot survive on this funding alone.  

In order for us to come together in our beautiful building and share the performances that transport, delight and inspire, we urgently need your help. Please support the future of live performance and make a gift to the Royal Opera House Recovery Campaign today. 

A gift of £65 could buy one week of antiviral fogging which will help keep our building sanitised and safe.

A £130 donation could pay for one week of hand sanitiser, which would enable essential staff and artists to continue their work during this time of closure.

A donation of £1,400 could allow us to purchase an entire week of PPE needed for artists and staff to work safely.
