Covent Garden cancels 3 shows due to rail strikesNews
Message from the ROH:
It is with great regret that the Royal Opera House must cancel the performance of Madama Butterfly on Tuesday 21 June, the Friends’ Rehearsal of Così fan tutte on Wednesday 22 June and the performance of Così fan tutte on Saturday 25 June due to the knock-on effects of the tube and national rail strikes.
It is very rare for the Royal Opera House to cancel performances, and we have done everything in our power to try to avoid this outcome. However, due to the sheer numbers of staff and artists unable to travel to and from the building, including essential technical and stage crews, we have been forced to make changes to the schedule which means technical rehearsals essential for the safe running of performances can now not take place.
