Orpheus & Eurydice

Until November 19, 2019

The English National Orchestra welcomes renowned mezzo soprano Dame Sarah Connolly, company star Sarah Tynan and rising soprano Soraya Magi as Orpheus, Euyrdice and Love respectively in a thrilling revival of Gluck's epic reform opera Orpheus and Eurydice. A masterpiece of the 18th century opera canon, its music drives the story forward with some of the composer's best loved works, from the beloved aria 'J'ai perdu mon Eurydice' and the romantic 'Objet de mon amour'.

It's the age old Orpheus and Eurydice myth but as you've never seen it before! After a short yet foundation-shaking tenure as the Globe's artistic director, celebrated English theatremaker Emma Rice makes her English National Orchestra debut during a dazzling and highly theatrical revival of Orpheus In The Underworld, Jacques Offenbach's delightfully irreverent comic opera.

Until November 30, 2019

Johnathan Miller brings his sublimely extravagant monochrome rendering of Gilbert and Sullivan's popular operetta back to the London Coliseum to delight audiences once more. One of the most in demand of the Savoy Operas, The Mikado combines the famed duo's talents for wit and melody in a tale of romance, hidden identities, political satire, hilarious japes and certain death that would make even Mozart proud!

Located in St. Martin's Lane, the London Coliseum is one of the biggest family variety theatres in London. It was opened in 1904 and was designed by architect Frank Matcham with the intention of the venue being one of the finest music halls for entertainment. Until 1968, the venue was used for a range of events including film screenings, musical comedies, plays and variety shows. Sadler's Wells Opera Company (now the English National Opera) took over the venue in 1968, and along with the English National Ballet, the venue is used primarily for opera.
