ENO Friends Events

2021/22 Season

As an ENO Member, you can access our specially curated programme of talks, recitals and rehearsals. Each one will bring you closer to our work and give you further insight into what goes on behind-the-scenes at an opera company.

For those who would prefer to watch from home, we are continuing ENO TV over Zoom at Opera Previews. So if you don’t feel ready to travel, you can still get in on the gossip!

To join in the fun, you can become an ENO Member from as little as £55 a year or £4.60 a month.

Covid-security at our events

To ensure everyone’s safety, we’re introducing some new guidelines for attending events. Find out more about our guidelines and rules here.


Following the success of ENO TV, select Members events are also available on ENO TV+, offering you the chance to join us from the comfort of your home. To take advantage, just select Online Stream when booking your ticket. Do then check your ticket for the link, allowing you to register for the event on Zoom. You will then receive an email from Zoom with your unique access link.

Dress rehearsals

Our dress rehearsals are usually the last full rehearsal before opening night. They offer you the opportunity to see our productions from just £10 with the highest ticket price £45 (£55 for The Valkryie).  We always try to have a range of start times for morning, afternoon and evening, ensuring that all of you, whether still working, retired or living outside London, will have the chance to attend a rehearsal.

Special offer – you can book an unlimited number of tickets to the dress rehearsals of all our revival productions this season.

Opera Previews

Our Opera Previews give you behind-the-scenes access, offering you a glimpse into what it takes to bring an opera to life from a panel of people who make it happen. The panel discussions last for one hour and feature people from our company, such as directors, conductors, singers, members of our award-winning Chorus and Orchestra, costume makers and technicians. We even display costumes, mood boards and designs of the set and lighting to give you as much insight as we can – and you might even get the opportunity to ask questions at the end.
