It’s all about the drama! Attending an opera performance is exhilarating and unforgettable. Song, Music, Drama, Design and Stagecraft come together in spectacular fashion.

It is a performance genre that sees dramatic elements such as voice, movement, character, roles, relationships, time and space come together against a backdrop of musical masterpieces.

Don’t think you will understand? All of our performances at His Majesty’s Theatre have surtitle (subtitle) screens to help you follow along.

Don’t know what to wear? Jeans, ball gowns and anything in between are perfectly acceptable.
Make a school group booking.

(Please note due to COVID-19 WAO has cancelled all performances until end of July 2020)
