An event that should be dubbed ‘The No Penny Opera’ get a fix of high culture without spending anything in Trafalgar Square. Crowds can gather for screened performances of live opera and ballet from the Royal Opera House as dusk falls over central London.
There will be three iconic productions in June and July:
12th June – Swan Lake
26th June – La Bohéme
July 12th – Don Giovanni
As with all free events, early arrival is recommended. You’re welcome to pack a picnic (but should bring plastic rather than glass container) and do bring something comfy to sit on, as these will be long performances and concrete isn’t comfortable! Get cosy with a blanket too, and a raincoat is probably a good idea too, just in case.
