Permanent Contract

The Linbury Theatre will reopen as a world class venue for mid-scale opera and dance, reflecting the principles and values that we see on our main stage. Programmed by the Royal Opera and The Royal Ballet, the companies will produce work, encourage the development of artists and the art forms, as well as present productions by, and in collaboration with, other national and international opera and dance companies. The Theatre will also provide a platform for showcasing some of our learning and participation performance programme. Our public foyer spaces will be open to welcome visitors throughout the day, and will be enlivened with a broad programme of both public and private events - from bandstand performances to tea dances, gala dinners and conferences.

  • Exceptional knowledge of the ecology of contemporary opera;
  • Well established experience of the process of opera producing;
  • Experience of developing and maintaining an outstanding network of key contacts in the opera world; and
