Enjoy the powerful voices of actors filling the auditorium and the stirring music of the English National Opera 

With a mass of the most talented composers, artists and creative team behind the helm – the English National Opera is a culmination of all the talent on and off the stage.

Making the London Coliseum their home at the turn of the 21st-century, they reopened to the public after a four-year renovation – ready to take the West End by storm.

Before the show even begins, as you take your seat in the auditorium – surrounded by the magnificent red and gold interior – you’re immediately swept up in the grand spectacle that is a night at the opera.

Then, when the curtains glide open and the lights dim, the orchestra begins to play and the actors come on stage – you know you’re in for a night to remember.
