Live from the Royal Opera House as part of our #OurHouseToYourHouse series.

🎥 This first concert will be hosted by the BBC’s Anita Rani and the Royal Opera House’s very own Director of Music, Antonio Pappano, and will see the ROH go behind the scenes as we open our theatre to a select group of musicians, artists and performers in the first live concerts since closing its doors to the public on 17 March.

The concerts will be a celebration of ballet and opera, from our house to your house, as social distancing and lockdown measures mean the Royal Opera House’s building remains closed to live audiences.

🎭 This first concert will be free and will include work from Benjamin Britten and George Frideric Handel, both of whom have a long history with the ROH, as well as accompanying work from George Butterworth and Turnage, performed by stars including Louise Alder, Toby Spence and Gerald Finley. We also look forward to an intimate world premiere by Wayne McGregor, Resident Choreographer of The Royal Ballet starring Francesca Hayward and Cesar Corrales.

Showcasing the best of The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet companies, and curated by Director of Music, Antonio Pappano, Director of The Royal Ballet Kevin O’Hare and Director of Opera Oliver Mears, the ROH is proud to present some of the world’s finest talent in opera, alongside intimate performances from a select number of dancers from The Royal Ballet. All broadcast live and direct to living rooms across the globe.
