Insights – Discover the Ring
As part of our celebration of Wagner's Ring Cycle, the Insights Programme will be hosting a full afternoon of events specially designed to make your forays into Wagner and the Ring Cycle more exciting and memorable. Events will include debates, interviews, talks and a few surprises suitable for everyone from the complete Wagner novice through to the most seasoned Ring expert. Visit the Ring Insights page to find out more.
Open Up and the Ring Cycle
The performances of the Ring Cycle take place after the Royal Opera House's Open Up project. While the interior of the main auditorium is not being changed, we are changing the signage around the Royal Opera House. Consequently, Ring Cycle tickets (physical and e-ticket) will look slightly different from all other main-stage tickets for performances that take place before the Ring Cycle.
