2-for-1 tickets to the Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season


Access to Times+ events and offers is exclusive to members of The Times and The Sunday Times

We've partnered with the Royal Opera House on their 2017/18 cinema season to give Times subscribers exclusive access to 2-for-1 tickets to The Royal Opera House Live Cinema Season, at more than 400 cinemas across the UK.

Experience the world’s finest opera and ballet performances in the comfort of your local cinema. The season continues in December with The Royal Ballet’s enchanting production of The Nutcracker, followed in January by David McVicar’s tragic opera Rigoletto, and Puccini’s operatic thriller Tosca in February.

Tuesday, December 5 sees the live screening of Peter Wright’s production of The Nutcracker for The Royal Ballet. With its festive period setting, dancing snowflakes and enchanting stage magic, the ballet has become the perfect Christmas entertainment, with Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous, sugar-spun music the most recognizable of all ballet scores.

David McVicar’s acclaimed production of Verdi’s potent and tragic opera Rigoletto features an excellent cast led by Dimitri Platanias, Lucy Crowe, and Michael Fabiano on Tuesday, January 16.

Drama, passion and fabulous music – Puccini’s operatic thriller Tosca is one of the most performed of all operas, and with its gripping plot and glorious music it’s easy to see why. Catch it live in cinema on Wednesday, February 7.
