Thebans at the London Coliseum, London

Thebans

From 3 May 2014

Prizewinning composer Julian Anderson breathes new life into the classic Theban tragedies, assisted by acclaimed librettist Frank McGuiness. This newly comissioned opera focuses on the fate of Oedipus and his daughter Antigone. Murder and incest, political ambition, love and loyalty, hatred and revenge all make for a heady concoction, which inevitably leads to devastation.

Cosi Fan Tutte - English National Opera at the London Coliseum, London

Cosi Fan Tutte - English National Opera

From 16 May 2014

Mozart and Da Ponte's final comic opera features two young men - best friends - who are challenged by a friend to test the fidelity of their fiancees by playing a cruel game: by disguising themselves as the other and seducing the other's girlfriend. But when the women succumb, will love and friendship prevail, or are they forever tainted by deceit?

The Pearl Fisher - English National Opera at the London Coliseum, London

The Pearl Fisher - English National Opera

From 16 Jun 2014

Penny Woolcock's haunting 2010 directorial success The Pearl Fishers is brought back to the Coliseum this season. A great achievement, considering that Woolcock had never listened to, let alone seen, Bizet's opera The Pearl Fishers before being asked to direct it! This ethereal romantic tragedy is set in the backwaters of Ceylon, a stark contrast which makes the events even more visceral.
