Royal Opera House
The Royal Opera House aims to enrich people’s lives through opera and ballet. Home to two of the world’s great artistic companies, The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet, who both perform with the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, we seek to be always accessible and engaging, to develop audiences across the UK and to break new ground in the presentation of lyric theatre. The Royal Opera, under the direction of Antonio Pappano, is one of the world’s leading opera companies. The Royal Ballet's extensive repertory embraces 19th-century classics, the singular legacy of works by Founder Choreographer Frederick Ashton and Principal Choreographer Kenneth MacMillan and a compelling new canon by Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor, Artistic Associate Christopher Wheeldon and Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett.
