Student Opera Offers
The Royal Opera House (ROH) is a stunning place, but for many, it can feel out of reach, with tickets often exceeding £100.
However, by taking advantage of some of the student schemes offered by the Young ROH you can save on tickets as well as cinema screenings. Click here to sign up to Young ROH. By registering you can buy last-minute Young ROH standby tickets and receive a discount at the bars and on the programmes offered at the opera. The website states that there are more than ’10,000 dedicated Young ROH tickets,’ meaning that there is a wide variety for anyone that wants to try out opera for the first time.

Also, don’t worry if you’ve already graduated- you’ll be able to join the opera’s Graduate List, which offers similar deals to the aforementioned student standby tickets. In addition, the opera house also links out to other student schemes offered by arts venues around the UK, like the National Theatre and Royal Shakespeare Company.
Alongside this, some especially dedicated Royal Ballet and Opera performance tickets can be bought for just £1. There are also dedicated Young ROH talks and workshops offered, for anyone interested in perusing a career in the arts or just wanting to know more about opera.
I totally get why you may have some reservations about the opera, and it can seem stuffy on first-glance. However, I can say from personal experience that opera houses are not only incredibly welcoming places, but they also offer you a chance to escape from the stress of everyday life- whether you’re a student or graduate, everyone deserves three hours off to dress up and relax in a beautiful venue.
And by taking advantage of the above schemes you can!
