As the curtain comes down on an eventful year, we're taking a look back at your highlights from a year of performances on the Royal Opera House stage.
Perhaps you fell in love with Giselle, on stage and in cinemas back in February. Or was Wayne McGregor's latest offering, Multiverse, more your cup of tea? Did you come to ballet for the first time, or discover a new work you'd never seen before?
Whether you were wowed by The Winter's Tale or amazed by Anastasia, we'd love to hear your favourite moments of 2016. Anyone who comments on this blog or shares their thoughts via Twitter using the hashtag #ROHreview2016 will be entered into a prize draw to win two tickets to the award-winning ballet, Woolf Works.
Here are some of your favourites via Twitter:
#ROHreview2016 For me, it was seeing Frankie Hayward debut as Perdita in Act 2 of Winter's Tale. Sparkling, enervating fare.
