Back to Live from Covent Garden

While our wonderful building is closed to the public, we are bringing you three very special performances streamed live from the Royal Opera House as part of our #OurHouseToYourHouse series.

Live from Covent Garden will celebrate ballet and opera in programmes of dance and music, curated by artistic directors of the Royal Opera House: Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera, Oliver Mears, Director of Opera, and Kevin O’Hare, Director of The Royal Ballet.

This is the third of a series of three live concerts, the first performances to happen at the Royal Opera House since we closed our doors on 17 March. You can watch the event – or share with a friend as a gift – for £4.99.
