Learning, was invited to become the curator of this prestigious venue. Since then, the Royal Opera House,
Mumbai has positioned itself as not just a spectacular location and heritage landmark, but more so as a
proactive partner and catalyst in the propagation and revival of arts and culture in the city. With Avid Learning
