Every month, on Sundays, families can go behind the scenes at the Royal Opera House for props workshops, costume-making, pop-up performances, live music, storytelling, orchestra-conducting, and the chance to meet dancers, singers and the many other talented people who put the shows together.
Suitable for kids aged 3-10, each Sunday at the Opera House has a different theme: March 17 centres on Wonder Women, celebrating the women behind the scenes at the ROH; while this season also includes Staggering Seafarers, with activities inspired by ballets and operas involving ships and sea travel (April 14), Beat Out That Rhythm (June 30), Family Pride (July 7) and Fabulous Creatures (July 28), where kids can get an introduction to the Firebird, Minotaur and swans that change into princesses.
Tickets are £10 for adults and £8 for children – book ahead to avoid disappointment.
