Each season we host a series of Young Patron events that give supporters the chance to get closer to ENO and its artists, discover more about opera and gain a unique insight into some of the best productions in London from a world-class opera company.
Members have access to an exciting and eclectic programme of events across the season which include behind the scenes stage tours, talks from our cast and creative teams, rehearsals, recitals, wine-tasting nights and parties and performances with the ENO Harewood Artists. Events give members the chance to network, socialise and discuss performances with like-minded young opera lovers.
