The Barbican Theatre is part of the Barbican Centre in the City of London. The Barbican centre was opened in 1982 as a gift to the nation, hosting a wide range of productions and arts events, including classical and contemporary concerts, film screenings and art exhibitions. The venue is home to the London Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Shakespeare Company. The Barbican Theatre was designed solely for the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Opens March 29, 2018

Avant-garde opera creator Mark-Anthony Turnage returns next March with a world premiere new work, based on the beloved and creepy story by award-winning novellist Neil Gaiman. Having previously brought us eyebrow-raising opera titles including Greek, The Silver Tassie and Anna Nicole, Coraline marks his first collaboration with The Royal Opera. So grab your yellow rain macs and star-patterned tops, when it heads to the Barbican next spring!
