Venture behind the scenes of one of the most prestigious creative venues in the world with Deloitte Ignite 15 at the Royal Opera House.
Designed to spark the imagination and ignite creativity, this month-long arts festival is inspired by two of the Royal Opera House's most enduring and popular works, Carmen and Romeo and Juliet.
Visitors can chance upon characters from the operas during immersive backstage tours, with free-climber Lezard Bleus as Romeo searching the dizzy heights of the building for Juliet. Catch Shopera's incarnation of Carmen as she flits between the colonnades where giant silks, designed by Kinetika, hang from the roof of the dazzling Paul Hamlyn Hall.
Backstage arts workshops let visitors try their hand at creating something for the stage, while the Operaoke booth gives budding performers the chance to sing along to famous tunes.
With abundant street performances, dance workshops, a classical nightclub and even finger-knitting lessons, this is heaven for anyone with a passion for creative arts.
