Winter Season production menus 2017/18

Tosca

Toast Puccini’s thriller with a fresh rhubarb Bellini made with Ruinart Champagne. We have a delightful selection of seasonal canapés to accompany your drinks before curtain up, too. Come the opera’s two intervals, relax and dine on dishes including duck with pickled endive, watercress and chilli jam, and roast beetroot puff pastry tart with buffalo ricotta.

Giselle

What could better match this haunting ballet than a seductively dark, bittersweet chocolate mousse? Balconies Restaurant has plenty of other romantic options for Giselle fans, too. Start perhaps with Italy’s prosciutto San Daniele, served with grilled pear, walnuts and rocket, or Portland crab with fine beans and tarragon dressing. Vegetarians will adore our lemon and basil risotto topped with grilled spring onions, while carnivores can treat themselves to loin of venison.

Carmen

A classic opera deserves classic dishes. Join us in Balconies Restaurant for Provençal-style fish soup, or Oscietra caviar with blinis, crème fraîche and chives. Follow with hake with saffron mash, or Dover sole with Champagne and oysters, then pistachio tart with bitter chocolate cream, for a meal that celebrates the finer things in life. Prefer the bustling Champagne Bar? Try our new brawn served in the French style or traditional British potted shrimps.

The Winter's Tale

We’ve designed our winter menus to be as compelling as Christopher Wheeldon’s ballet. For vivacious colours and vibrant tastes, look no further than the Crush Room, where we have escabeche of red mullet with scallops, fennel, blood orange and basil, and beef carpaccio with Cipriani dressing. Our British cheeseboard is the perfect way to finish off a bottle of red or, for a frothy finale, opt for meringue and mascarpone roulade with tropical fruit salad.

From the House of the Dead

Quintessential seasonal ingredients take pride of place on our menus. For this Royal Opera premiere of Janáček’s final work, our Balconies Restaurant has velvety Jerusalem artichoke soup topped with truffle scented cream, and guinea fowl with savoy cabbage, juniper and glazed shallot. In the Crush Room you won’t want to miss truffle-marinated buffalo mozzarella with vegetables à la Grecque, or dark chocolate delice with orange cream.

New Wayne McGregor / The Age of Anxiety / New Christopher Wheeldon

The coming Spring brings a new cast of ingredients, including wild garlic, English asparagus, beetroot, and lamb rump.

Our chefs have been inspired by this contemporary triple bill to compose a delightful menu of modern dishes. Prefer the classics? Don’t worry, our famous smoked salmon still takes centre stage.
