Royal Opera House
The Royal Opera House is one of the busiest theatres in the world, with over 350 performances and 1,000 other events in the past year, and over 1 million people attending events in their Covent Garden site and via cinemas worldwide.
The Learning and Participation programme is one of the main ways in which the Royal Opera House takes the arts into communities. Over 30,000 people take part in projects with an even larger number of people seeing performances at the Royal Opera House. There are a number of different programmes for school children and people with disabilities to engage with the arts, whether that be opera, ballet or dance. The aim of the programme is to promote the arts through inclusivity.
The Julia and Hans Rausing Trust have supported the Royal Ballet season at the Royal Opera House, donating over £1 million in recent years.
