The Royal Opera House is a global artistic force, housed in one of the UK’s most beautiful theatres. It is from our Covent Garden stages that The Royal Ballet, The Royal Opera and the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House perform year round, reaching audiences across the UK and further afield. Whether it’s through our international tours, our learning and participation work or our ROH Live Cinema screenings, we take the very best of opera and ballet across the country and to the world and, in doing so, attract the best talent the world has to offer.
The Muse gallery was established by artists, to support emerging contemporaries by combining creative and commercial concepts under one roof. Subject to a successful application, we also offer exhibition space to more established artists at a nominal commission. With limited slots per year, we look to our panel of affiliated artists and esteemed professionals to elect shows and offer comprehensive appraisals to those proposals still in need of refinement. Throughout the year, we also open our doors to community arts projects, musicians, film makers and live performers to fill the calendar with events from 'Sound art’ to ‘Cult film’ evenings and associated seminars. Our residency program (only BA and MA graduates need apply) continues to offer a subsidised platform for candidates, with a group and solo show during their time with us. We work towards both public and private sector funding for our residents and visiting artists, with professional development working along side our team during visiting shows hosted throughout the year.

The LSO is proud to be Resident Orchestra at the Barbican Centre, where it performs around 70 concerts a year.
The residency has enabled the Orchestra to establish a truly loyal audience and to fulfil many artistic aspirations. Joint projects between the Orchestra and the Barbican place us at the heart of the Centre's programme.
The LSO also enjoys successful residencies at the Lincoln Center in New York, at the Philharmonie de Paris, and at Suntory Hall in Tokyo. Other regular tour destinations include the Far East, North America and all the major European cities.
Touring has been a part of the Orchestra's life since the very beginning. In its early years, the LSO made annual provincial tours, travelling around the country by train for two weeks at a time. The first of these tours in 1905 was conducted by Sir Edward Elgar and featured many of his own compositions. The Orchestra's first tour abroad was to Paris in 1906 when the Orchestra travelled with the 300-strong Leeds Choral Union to give two performances of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony at the ThéÃ¢tre du Chatelet.
