30,000 tickets for Royal Opera House performances Monday to Thursday, offered at £25 for anyone aged 16 to 25
The Royal Opera House has launched its Young ROH scheme, offering 30,000 subsidised tickets for main stage performances during the season. Young people from 16 to 25 can sign up and access priority booking ahead of general release on Tuesday 24 August.
The upcoming 2021-2022 season, the first full season since 2019, includes revivals and world premieres from The Royal Ballet and The Royal Opera.
Two hundred Young ROH tickets, all priced at £25, will be available per performance for priority booking, offering up the best seats in the house Monday to Thursday. Those eligible will be able to purchase up to two tickets for each performance. This scheme is made possible by the support of the Bunting Family and Sir Simon Robey.
Sir Simon Robey, who is Chairman of the Royal Opera House, said,
After such a difficult period for us all, it’s wonderful to be able to share a full season of world class opera and ballet with members of Young ROH, so they too get the chance to be moved and inspired.
The offer excludes The Nutcracker (full run), 14 October 2021 performance of The Dante Project and 1 June 2022 performance of Like Water for Chocolate.
