Why support us?

Every shoe, sequin, orchestral part and lighting gel comes at a price. And without skilled footwear supervisors, workroom managers, armourers, music librarians, stage managers and technicians, no production would reach the stage. That's why the £26 million you contribute each year, through donations small and large, is so important.

Whenever you make a gift to the Royal Opera House Covent Garden Foundation, become a Friend or Patron or leave a gift in your will, you play a crucial role in creating extraordinary performances, outstanding craftsmanship and inspiring learning and participation projects.

Everybody has a part to play. Play yours today.
