The Royal Opera House has launched their brand new streaming service, giving you access to world-class ballet and opera performances. To celebrate the launch, you can join us for performances and conversation with Music Director, Sir Antonio Pappano, and Australian-American soprano, Danielle de Niese.

Hosted by The Telegraph writer Ben Lawrence, this subscriber-exclusive event comes to you from the iconic Metropolis Studios in Chiswick, London. Danielle will perform three short arias, accompanied by Sir Antonio on piano, and the pair will discuss their favourite operatic pieces, what they are most looking forward to performing this autumn and their fascinating and illustrious careers.

Relax and enjoy an hour of world-class music and a Q&A session with two stars of the opera world from the comfort of your home.
