Cultural and creative development is a vital aspect of every young person’s education. We aim to provide opportunities for young people to engage with opera and ballet and working artists.


The Royal Opera House is passionate about inspiring people to choose careers in the arts sector, particularly in the backstage areas that they may not have previously considered.


Providing opportunities for life long learning is a key aim of our Education programme. We have made available digital learning resources to read, watch or listen to in the Discover section of this site, or to download for free from in iTunes U.

Our Insight Programme invites people of all ages and levels of experience to engage with ballet opera and music and specialists that work at the Royal Opera House.
