Opera and music

Bill Bailey, 'the finest stand-up comedian this country has to offer' (The Times), becomes the first performer of his kind to step out for a week of performances on the Royal Opera House Main Stage.

This Strictly Come Dancing champion brings music and laughter with a compendium of traveller’s tales compiled over his two decades as a touring minstrel. Expect musical virtuosity, surreal stylings and trademark intelligence as he tackles politics, philosophy and the pursuit of happiness. Listen as he fashions a symphony from a ringtone, gasp as he tells the real story of Old MacDonald and raise an eyebrow as he re-imagines the 'Stars and Stripes'. Bill will be joined by special guest Florence Hvorostovsky.

Twenty years of touring shenanigans from a comedian described by The Telegraph as 'the brainiest comic of his generation'.

Main Stage

There is no lift and step-free access to the auditorium for tickets that use doors 1D, 2D, 3E and 4E due to maintenance work. Wheelchair and companion seats are still available on level 6 (door 6F) and in the Stalls Circle. Step-free access to the left hand side of the auditorium is subject to delay due to only one lift being in operation.

The Orchestra Stalls are reached by a minimum of nine steps. Seats in the Donald Gordon Grand Tier are accessible by 10 steps or fewer. Find out more about accessing the Main Stage Auditorium.
