Deloitte Ignite is an annual month long contemporary arts festival and the showpiece of the sponsorship between Deloitte and the Royal Opera House. Each festival is designed to introduce opera and ballet in an intriguing and innovative way to new audiences, in particular young professionals and the artistically curious who may not have considered visiting the Royal Opera House before.
Deloitte Ignite is unique - there is no other festival like it. It’s bold, creative, forward looking and challenges traditional thinking and perceptions of the Royal Opera House and of Deloitte. Each year a different curator is invited to develop a multi-arts programme featuring cutting edge artists, providing an exciting and successful platform for emerging and contemporary arts.
Recognised repeatedly as a leading example of a great arts partnership, Deloitte Ignite has to date achieved multiple award wins and nominations for Deloitte and the Royal Opera House, including the Hollis Sponsorship Award in 2009 and 2012, Arts and Business category.
