The Royal Opera House has announced a Young ROH scheme, which will provide 30,000 subsidized tickets for people aged 16-25.

Eligible applicants can start signing up for free right now via the company’s official website and will get a chance to see performances from the Royal Opera House’s main stage. Among the performances that will be available are “The Nutcracker,” the Oct 14, 2021 performance of “The Dante Project,” and the June 1, 2022 showcase of “Like Water for Chocolate.”

“We are delighted to launch Young ROH, a scheme that cements our ongoing commitment to widening access to world-class arts for a younger generation. 16-25 year-olds will be able to experience the best of a spectacular new season, specially designed to showcase all that The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet have to offer,” said Alex Beard, Chief Executive of the Royal Opera House. 

Sir Simon Robey, Chairman of the Royal Opera House and generous supporter of Young ROH, added, “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.”
