The Royal Opera House is planning to make some of its best seats available for the price of a large pizza.
You’ll have to sit on the floor.
Oliver Mears, the RO’s director, is intent on reviving the old Midland Bank Proms, where rows of stalls seats were removed to make way for young operagoers, sitting on cushions and blankets.
Brilliant initiative, long overdue.
The Telegraph has an interview with Oliver this morning.
