Deeper into the Insights Session

Taking place on Sunday 5 November from 12.30-2pm at the LINBURY THEATRE, Royal Opera House, ROH Insights: Traces through Time, is an ode to recovery. Dive deep with the award-winning Fallen Angels Dance Theatre and New Note Orchestra and see first hand how people from all walks of life are using dance and music in their recovery from addiction.
