    Tickets don't cost the earth if booked in advance. Elitism is not a dirty word - the best opera and ballet in the world is very affordable! Food and drink is good, but expensive, however.

    A must have if you can afford it

    This opera house is perfect for voices. International stars visiting all the time and decent price policy in the amphitheater

    Woolf work is the best. It's a great art work. But don't recommend sandwich collection and coffee in the bar during the intermission. Nope!

    Y Kim · May 25
  • Ben A.

    Pay a visit to the Linbury Studios for cheaper and more intimate performances.

    Ben Adelie · April 18

    Must-visit for any trip to London. Come to the box office at 10am on the day of a (sold-out) performance to try to score one of the 67 same-day tix. Savour the beauty with a drink on the terrace

    Marina · April 12
  • Faith S.

    Beautiful! If you are a ballet dancer, you will appreciate the home of the Royal Ballet! Come even just to see it and take a photo!

    Fantastic location in Covent Garden

  • Opera C.

    The premier opera house of this country. Big name singers tend to make tickets rather scarce. But do try, many reasonably priced tickets.

    Maria Stuarda

  • Sharifa I.

    Mariinsky's Swan Lake was wonderful. If you want to avoid the interval crowds and queues (and can afford some extra expense) book a table in advance at one of the Opera restaurants - it was worth it!

    Sharifa Islam · August 7, 2014
  • Sarwar O.

    Beautiful building and the productions vary depending on Director and Stage Manager. Worth visiting the Terrace Balcony where you can have a Bird's Eye View of Covent Garden and London Landscape

    Sarwar Osman · July 16, 2014
  • Dave S.

    They don't have plastic cups to pour leftover interval drinks into. So if you've ordered a large glass of wine for the interval and haven't finished it, you'll need to neck it back #tootighttotoss

    Get yourself onto their email list for the occasional amazing deal (eg best Orchestra Stalls seats for less than half price - £85 rather than the usual £180)

    Daniel Rosenberg · March 23, 2014
  • Zaya K.

    Can generally get same day tickets in person at the box office after 10 am on the same day. They reserve about 70-80 tickets which are released on the day of performance

    In 1837 The Royal Opera house was the first ever theatre to use limelight. Limelight comes from the mixing of oxygen and hydrogen and then adding real burning lime to achieve a bright light.
