La Bayadère

Natalia Marakova’s ballet production is the ideal opportunity to experience the Royal Opera House’s stylish new Restaurant Level 5.

Simon Boccanegra

Why not pair the dramatic staging of this subtly powerful opera with a table in the Crush Room? As autumn segues into winter, our chefs will be preparing rich terrines of game, and salads of golden beetroots and salsify. Come interval, treat yourself to saffron poached pear with orange financier, or our Pear Drop Ruinart Champagne cocktail.

The Unknown Soldier / Infra / Symphony in C

A table amid the bustle of the Paul Hamlyn Hall Champagne Bar is an ideal accompaniment to an evening of contemporary ballet. Eat as lightly or richly as you prefer. Our flexible menu ranges from simple Bayonne ham with celeriac remoulade, to zingy green herb quinoa with spiced cauliflower, pine nuts and heritage carrots. The only question is: can you resist our dark chocolate tart?
