About The Cause

The Royal Opera House is delighted to launch this year’s Grand Draw, which will support our apprenticeship and work experience programmes.

The Royal Opera House is passionate about inspiring people to choose careers in the arts sector, particularly in backstage areas. We have been offering apprenticeships in backstage production and technical departments since 2007, providing high-quality vocational training by learning on the job from some of the most skilled practitioners in the performing arts. We also run a work placement programme, which offers people who are either in education or in the early stage of their career the opportunity to gain practical experience and invaluable insight into our working environments.

It is a wonderful feeling to see something that you have helped to make be a part of a completed set for a show, and I’ve already been given so many opportunities to push myself and try out new skills.
