Membership - become a Friend

Membership is a great way to support the Royal Opera House.

We are currently facing one of the most serious financial threats in our nearly 300 year history. Your support as a member is needed now more than ever. By joining as a member or renewing your membership, you are investing in the future of ballet, opera, dance and music. On behalf of everyone at the Royal Opera House, thank you again for choosing to support us.

Becoming a Friend or Patron is the best way to get access to rehearsals and behind-the-scenes events, get alerts when tickets become available and buy them before they go on sale to the public, as well as a monthly newsletter and discount in our shop. You can also buy membership as a gift for family or a friend.

Your support as a member underpins every aspect of the Royal Opera House's work – its achievements onstage, the commissioning of new work, development for talented emerging artists and craftspeople, and an extensive learning and participation programme.

Make the most of your donation.
