Royal Opera House

The Royal Opera House is home to three of the world’s great performing art companies: The Royal Ballet, The Royal Opera and the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House. Our two theatres are in London’s Covent Garden but our work is accessed and experienced across the UK and globally through touring partnerships, cinema programmes, radio, TV and online-streaming.

The Royal Opera House’s mission is to enrich the cultural life of the nation by growing the public enjoyment and appreciation of exceptional ballet and opera. We aspire to be a global centre of excellence for the great art we produce and for the way we do it, including a commitment to inclusivity and our social and environmental responsibilities.

ROH has developed our sound management programme over almost two decades. Today it has grown to become a comprehensive package of support across our workforce, aimed at reducing noise-induced hearing loss and protecting the hearing of all our staff and artists.

We fully support the Make Listening Safe Campaign and its aim to improve hearing health. We know its importance for both our artists, backstage staff and audience in the creation and enjoyment of world class music.
