Chrissie Hynde performs two special live sets at the Royal Opera House this summer. The sets will feature songs from her recent album of Bob Dylan covers, Standing In The Doorway: Chrissie Hynde Sings Bob Dylan, among other favourites.
These shows are part of the Royal Opera House 2021 Summer residencies. Performances will be socially distanced and fully compliant with the latest government COVID safety guidelines.
Standing In The Doorway was recorded in lockdown by Chrissie and her Pretenders bandmate James Walbourne. It was produced almost entirely by text message, with James recording ideas on his phone and sending them to Chrissie to add her vocals. The tracks were mixed by Tchad Blake (U2, Arctic Monkeys, Fiona Apple). Support will come from London duo The Rails, previous winners of Best New Artist at the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
The ticket limit for Chrissie Hynde sings Bob Dylan is six tickets across the run. Tickets are sold in socially distanced pairs only. You must maintain social distancing from other groups at all times. If the guidance changes and your visit is impacted, we will let you know.
From 19 July 2021 we may be able to make more seats available, subject to government guidance on social distancing. This means that you may be seated next to another group, and may not be distanced from others as currently indicated.
We welcome children aged 5 to 14, but they must have their own ticket and sit next to an accompanying adult.
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.
