From pioneering composers and choreographers to gender-fluid performances throughout our history. Join us as we explore queer themes, productions, and the rich contributions to the music and theatre made by the LGBTQ+ icons who have helped shape the Royal Opera House.

As the Royal Opera House is a fully working theatre, each tour is a unique experience and varies according to what is available on the day. Please remember that you are visiting a working theatre and plans may change at short notice.

Please note this tour does not enter the backstage areas of the Royal Opera House. Access to the main auditorium is not guaranteed.
