Home to The Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet, this stunning building is for some, the beating heart of Covent Garden, offering as it does both traditional performances of all-time classics in the main auditorium, and more experimental works by new companies in the smaller studios. The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker are absolute Christmas essentials with their extraordinary set design and magical movement, whilst opera fans will get powerful renditions of everything from Carmen to La Traviata. With standing tickets starting at a mere £5 for some performances, everyone can afford a view.
