The Savoy and Exclusive Access to the Royal Opera House
London, August 13, 2013
The Savoy and the Royal Opera House have both played host to stars of stage and screen since the last century. Historically, legendary performers such as Nellie Melba and Maria Callas have chosen The Savoy as their home from home while gracing the stage of the Royal Opera House.
In celebration of the long-standing relationship between two such iconic London landmarks, The Savoy and the Royal Opera House introduce a series of inspiring experiences for guests looking to combine an evening at the ballet or opera with a stay in one of London’s finest hotels.
A Stay at The Savoy and the World Premiere of Elizabeth presented by The Royal Ballet
Guests can combine a stay in a River View Suite with the unique opportunity to attend The Royal Ballet’s world premiere of Elizabeth on 27 November 2013. The Silver Darling, a luxury river yacht moored at Savoy Pier, will transport guests to the Painted Hall at the Old Royal Naval College Greenwich for the performance, followed by a special dinner with the cast and artistic team in attendance.
The intimate evening of song, dance, drama and music, follows the life of Elizabeth through the lens of the men she loved and that loved her, supported and betrayed her. Royal Ballet Principal Zenaida Yanowsky and the award-winning actress Lindsay Duncan both star as Elizabeth, with Principal Guest Artist Carlos Acosta dancing the roles of her lovers, accompanied on stage by Raphael Wallfisch on cello and the voice of rising opera star baritone Duncan Rock.
- One-night stay at The Savoy in a River View Suite with breakfast.
- Fruit de Mer platter and glass of Champagne for two in Kaspar’s Seafood Bar and Grill.
- Return river transfer to Greenwich on the Silver Darling luxury river yacht.
