Having won tickets for La Boheme at the Royal opera house in London my wife and I went with a varying degree of expectancy. It was in fact a wonderful experience and not having been to the opera before, Surprised to see the varying social...More
Being penniless and underemployed we saw La Bohème from the cheap seats. Great overall entertainment for the price. We stood in the amphitheatre. Limited view, but a fantastic aural experience.
The only detracting element of the night was the distinctly fishy odour in the main...More
Second time to the ROH and what a fabulous experience. Had ticket up in the upper amphitheatre but great views. Staging was really great and I would encourage anyone to just go and see any opera here. It is done to such a high standard...More
Truly amazing experience. Of course it's not cheap at £187 per seat in the stalls and £138 for lunch (including 2 glasses of Champagne) but sometimes you just have to do these things. The sets at ROH are so realistic, the shopping arcades, cafe and...More
Dinner at the Balconies Restaurant was superb. First rate service (it's great that you can make a request of anyone passing by and know it will be attended to promptly), delicious food, a decent (if rather pricey) wine list, and a lovely environment. OK, so...More
My wife and I go regularly to both opera and ballet at Covent Garden Opera House and I would love to encourage others who have never been to either ballet or opera to try it. Tonight we went to see and hear Mozart’s Don Giovanni...More
Went to see Don Guovanni. Gorgeous!
The atmosphere is friendly. Seat in the amphitheatre not that bad. We could actually stand 3hours of sitting which could be a nightmare in some places!
Beautiful bar and restaurant with lots of light coming through the glass ceiling....More
We have visited the Royal Opera House on a number of occasions.

We attended the last night of the Royal Ballet’s performance of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake.

I expected it to be boring and loud, however I couldn't have been further from the truth! It was so entertaining, funny and a truly incredible experience. Although the ampitheatre was steep and I couldn't have watched it without subtitles, it was brilliant!
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated
by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.

I sat stalls circle right A90 for Carmen and although not central, it was an excellent, clear view. Got fantastic advice from the box office, so I recommend booking through them for expert help.
