With the Royal Opera House's recent re-vamp now fully open, the company is showcasing the accessibility and openness of the new foyers with a series of events on Sundays in November. A Month of Sundays features an immersive programme in the building on every Sunday in November, and entry is just £5. Opera, ballet and much more will fill the new (and old) spaces with everything from upcycling workshops transforming props of the past, dance workshops and the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party.

Performance programmes during the month include dance duets by choreographers Hubert Essakow, Alexander Whitley and Richard Chappell, the Royal Opera Chorus in Arvo Pärt's Magnificat and George Butterworth’s The Lads in their Hundreds, New English Ballet Theatre in an extract from Wayne Eagling’s new ballet Remembrance [see my review of the ballet], a pop-up retelling of Verdi’s La traviata, a new work from Charlotte Edmonds made in collaboration with artist Hugo Dalton and Royal Ballet dancer Joseph Sissens, and performances from Lost Dog dance theatre company.

Full details from the Royal Opera House website.
