Royal Opera House Students
On stage and in cinemas from £5

Have you witnessed the greatest singing and dancing in the world?

The Royal Opera House is home to internationally renowned opera and ballet. This makes it the perfect place to take your first steps into these fantastic, all-encompassing art forms. Music, dance, theatre, design, emotion, storytelling, romance, tragedy, laughter and tears — you can experience all this in their impeccably crafted performances.

Surely all of this perfection comes at a price? Well yes it does: £1-25. If you register with the ROH Student Scheme for free, you will get access to over 10,000 dedicated student tickets.

This includes tickets to every single performance on the Main Stage and four performances where the Amphitheatre is reserved just for you. This Season’s Student Amphitheatre Performances feature the titanic operas Tosca and La traviata, the romantic Giselle and a mixed evening of ballets featuring the world premiere of a new piece by contemporary choreographer Wayne McGregor. It doesn’t stop there. How about one entire student-only performance of The Royal Ballet’s world premiere of Frankenstein? Or 40% off tickets in the Linbury Studio Theatre, where you can see cutting edge and alternative work from both resident companies? And what if you can’t get to Covent Garden? Well, there are two tickets for £10 at participating cinemas on the day of a live opera or ballet screening.

Our favourite offering from the ROH Student Scheme is their £10 last minute tickets to sit in the best seats in the theatre. Their next Student Standby will be the new opera Morgen und Abend by ground-breaking composer Georg Friedrich Haas and one of the most performed living dramatists, Jon Fosse. This will be announced on Wednesday 11 November via email, so make sure you become a member before then.

So what now? Register at and let the Royal Opera House open their doors to a new world of experience for you.
