Family Sunday at The Royal Opera House
This half term, the Royal Opera House opens its doors to children of all ages, inviting them to experience something new, and to dance, sing and create as part of a Family Sunday inspired by Romeo and Juliet.
On Sunday 17th February from 11am to 3.30pm, the front-of-house spaces will be transformed into a kids’ playground with exclusive pop-up Royal Ballet performances of extracts from Romeo and Juliet, activities and interactive fun for all ages.
Taking inspiration from the romantic love story Romeo and Juliet, families can make anything from a mask to a sword or a shadow puppet, with the help of craftspeople from the Royal Opera House. Parents and children can take their first ballet steps or perfect their pliés in the workshops throughout the day and learn how to battle like the Montagues and Capulets in the stage fighting workshops.
Budding conductors can direct their own orchestra, and there will also be dressing up, storytelling, props on display and appearances from famous faces from the production of Romeo and Juliet who will roam the halls, adding Shakespearian flare to the family fun day.
Tickets to the Family Sunday: Romeo and Juliet cost £8 for children and £10 for adults and are available to buy in advance online or on the door. The event is suitable for children aged 3 to 10 years old.
11AM - 3.30PM
