Why we’ve launched our new Season Appeal for 2014/15

Take a look behind the scenes as we prepare for the start of the Season.

We have just announced the 2014/15 Season for The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet. With eleven new productions and some much-loved revivals, there’s plenty to look forward to at the Royal Opera House.

Before the curtain goes up in September, there is a huge amount of work to be done behind the scenes. Over the coming weeks, we will introduce you to five Royal Opera House staff: Cheryl in the Opera Shoe Room, Robin in the Music Library, Jay in Costume, Ken in Surtitles and Alexandra from our Learning and Participation team. Along with their colleagues, they will spend the summer preparing for the new Season ahead.

Our annual Season Appeal supports these essential behind-the-scenes tasks, from polishing the Chorus members’ shoes to creating places on the Write an Opera course for teachers. As a charity, we rely on donations from supporters, ticket sales and funding from Arts Council England to produce world-class opera and ballet and learning and participation projects for children, families and adults of all ages. Find out more about why we run fundraising appeals.

Everybody has a part to play. Play yours today.
