Programmes and Playbills


This collection includes playbills from the 18th and 19th centuries, and a virtually complete run of nightly programmes from 1900. These cover all performances at the Royal Opera House: ice-shows, film shows and pantomimes, social dancing and circuses as well as drama, ballet and opera and the work of ROH2. There are also programmes for The Royal Ballet 1931–45 (as the Vic-Wells/Sadler's Wells Ballet), for the resident Companies' tours and for The Birmingham Royal Ballet, 1945–97.
