Managed to get some fairly last minute tickets to what turned out to be a sold out show. The tickets we had were very reasonably priced and booked via the ROH website. When we started walking up and up and up we thought we weren't...More

This is a must see venue and worth the high expenditure for a treaty night out. We saw the 2017 production of Turandot and it was fabulous. Great singing and wonderful set and choreography. A night at an ROH production, whether opera or ballet, has...More

We saw Turandot on Sunday evening, wonderful production with amazing perfomances from singers, dancers and orchestra. Surprisingly ROH didn't overcharge for programmes, drinks or ice creams. Wonderful venue and tickets not too outrageous even for orchestra stalls

Don't believe any review that says this place isn't fantastic. Even if you don't like opera you must go once if you can afford it. Singing and music world class. Setting is beautiful and the audience almost as entertains as opera
