To many people, “Covent Garden” is synonymous with the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden. And such is the international acclaim of the House, every leading operatic performer wants to do a season in Covent Garden to represent the acme of a glittering career.
We are often regarded as Europe’s capital for opera and all the most popular productions rotate on and off the stage here (Turandot, La Bohème, Die Fledermaus, The Magic Flute etc.) as well as a number of lesser-known and new operas.
Amongst the guest performers who have sung here are all the most famous singers including Nellie Melba, Luciano Pavarotti and Angela Gheorgiu but whoever is on stage, such is the quality, you are guaranteed a superb experience.

The ROH is not just about breathtaking feats of operatic excellence, The Royal Ballet is also here: the foremost destination for balletic arts in the nation’s capital with the cream of international ballerinas and creative choreographers.
Covent Garden is also home to The English National Opera at the Coliseum where the classic Italian and German operas are performed in accessible English translations. Whether the fine dramatic arts are your passion or just a hobby you will not be disappointed in Covent Garden.
