News: Travelex & Royal Opera House open ballot for £10 tickets

Wednesday 30 June 2004

Travelex today announced that tickets for the £10 Mondays at The Royal Opera House will be made available to the public on Thursday July 1 by means of a ballot, either online, or by post.

The Travelex £10 Mondays are being introduced as part of a £1 million sponsorship agreement with The Royal Opera House to provide 100 of the top seats – valued at up to £175 – every Monday for half the season for just £10*.*

Today’s announcement follows a consultation by the two organisations involved to develop a way of distributing the tickets. A ballot which is accessible online or by post was agreed as the best means of ensuring a fair allocation of the seats.

Applicants can apply on-line or in writing. All information and application forms for tickets will be available online at www.travelex.royaloperahouse.org those who are not online, the ROH will send application forms that can be completed and sent in by post.

Those interested can apply for either a single or a pair of tickets and need only to apply once to be entered into every ballot. There will be 23 ballots in total, one for each Travelex £10 Monday. The Royal Ballet will be performing on 5 of the Mondays. All successful applicants will be informed at least two weeks before the date of the performance to allow them enough time to plan any travel or accommodation requirements.

There will be some wheel chair spaces available at the special Travelex £10 Monday price and the ballot for wheelchair users and their companions will take place separately.

The £10 Mondays begin on Monday 20 September 2004 with a new production of Massenet’s Wertherconducted by Antonio Pappano, Music Director of The Royal Opera.
