Our 2012/13 Season infographic - Click to enlarge

With the Royal Opera House 2012/13 season underway after curtain up on Keith Warner's Ring Cycle, we've created an infographic to pick out a few highlights and interesting facts around the various productions.

Among other nuggets of information, you can find out who the season's most represented composers and choreographers are, the busiest artists and trivia about some of the productions we're most excited for.

We also recently asked Director of The Royal Opera, Kasper Holten and Director of The Royal Ballet, Kevin O Hare for their thoughts on the Season ahead. See what they picked out as their 2012/13 Season highlights.

What are you most looking forward to over the coming season?

    Hi Chris, I love this - it's a great way to show information - how did you create it, in illustrator or using a specific infographic tool?

      Hi Jessica,
      Glad you like it - it was created in Illustrator by Emilia and Linda.

  2. Nice, well done Ballet Bag ! Would be interesting to see the same kind of infographics for other major opera houses around the world, and to compare their statistics.

    This infogram is a really novel way to present much useful and interesting information. Is it printable? It would be great to have this on my office wall (beside the La boheme poster). Well done to Emelia and Linda

      Hi Ian. Glad you like it. If you click to enlarge, the file should print out fine. Do pass it on to any opera and ballet-loving friends!

    Chris - On your YouTube "Season Highlights 2012/2013",published on April 16, at 0.14 seconds, you spell Eugene Onegin as Eugine Onegin!!

    I can't see why in six months it couldn't have been corrected. Very Tacky!

      Hi Mary

      I'm afraid that errors do occasionally slip through and we correct when we are made aware of them. In this case you are the first person to mention the Onegin error. We will look into revising the film next week. Thanks for spotting this.

      Best wishes
