For this latest competition, our winner and a companion will enjoy a private backstage tour of the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, London. Courtesy of ROH staff member Georgie Barry, gain a fascinating insight into the mechanics of this cultural destination that brings world-class ballet, opera, dance and music to two stages. (Prize is subject to availability.)
The Royal Opera House’s 2019 summer season opens for general booking on 3 April. Operatic highlights include mighty classics Carmen and Boris Godunov, alongside comic operas The Marriage of Figaro and La Fille du Régiment, plus a new production of War and Peace. Meanwhile, the visiting Bolshoi Ballet present Tchaikovsky’s spellbinding Swan Lake, Russian favourite Spartacus and a sparkling adaptation of Don Quixote, while The Royal Ballet pay tribute to Margot Fonteyn, marking the centenary of her birth.
