The Jette Parker Young Artists, the Royal Opera Chorus and the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House have teamed up to breathe new life into Royal Opera House spaces that have been empty this past year. Featuring beloved pieces from Britten, Mozart, Wagner, Puccini, Gounod and Verdi, ROH Unmasked has been filmed in spaces that are not traditionally used for performances, ranging from behind the scenes to on the roof!
The music, settings and atmosphere of the performances mimic the experience of entering lockdown and emerging from it on the other side. This is juxtaposed with interviews with the Royal Opera House staff who usually work within the spaces. Featuring Filipe Manu, Alexandra Lowe, Blaise Malaba, Kiandra Howarth and Masabane Cecilia Rangwanasha alongside members of the Royal Opera Chorus, this film captures the reawakening spirit of everyone at the Royal Opera House as we return to live performance.
Live performance is a shared experience, and our audiences are at the heart of what we do on our stages, backstage, online, in cinemas and in our communities. This year’s global pandemic has affected all arts organisations across the world. We have lost £3 in every £5 of our income, and any Government loan will take us only part of the way. We need your help to bring artists back to our stages. Please consider making a donation to the Royal Opera House Recovery Campaign.
