My husband and I were taken to see the ballet Manon by my son and daughter in law as a treat for my birthday. We had a box and the ballet and the music were superb. Such a great venue and a day to remember.

What a wonderful evening. The refurbishment of the roh is suberb. The ballet was breathtakingly stunning. We had refreshments in the interval in the Paul Hambln champagne bar. The whole evening was wonderful. Go there if you can.
