The Glenn Miller Story Poster

The Glenn Miller Story

Until August 18, 2018

Tommy Steele makes a triumphant return to the stage, six decades after he first trod the boards, to star as the late, great big band pioneer in this strictly limited run of The Glenn Miller Story. Emblematic of Wartime entertainment, musician, composer and bandleader Miller and his orchestra soundtracked an era with hits such as 'In The Mood' 'Moonlight Serenade' 'Little Brown Jug' and many more evoking nostalgia and memory on each listen.

Salome Poster


September 28 - October 23, 2018

Exceptionally bloody and twisted, there is nothing quite like Richard Strauss' influential take on Oscar Wilde's scandalous play, revived in this new production from the ENO and theatre director Adena Jacob.

Porgy and Bess Poster

Porgy and Bess

October 11 - November 17, 2018

Known and loved by many, Porgy and Bess makes its English National Opera debut this autumn. With a grand 40 piece chorus, full orchestra and the grandness that only the ENO can bring this dark opera is set to make your spine tingle and keep you on the edge of your seat.

Lucia Di Lammermoor Poster

Lucia Di Lammermoor

October 25 - December 5, 2018

Donizetti's consuming romantic drama returns to the ENO in 2018 for the first time in eight years with David Alden's highly rated staging. Based on Sir Walter Scott's 1819 novel, Lammermoor is a thrilling exploration of honour, reputation, and political power, at the expense of the innocent Lucia.

War Requiem Poster

War Requiem

November 16 - December 7, 2018

The ENO gather a potent group of talent to revive Benjamin Britten's 1961 masterpiece in a brand new production that will mark the centenary of the end of World War I. Director Daniel Kramer, Turner Prize winner Wolfgang Tillmans and Music Director Martyn Brabbins come together to stage the evocative unforgettable work with a heightened emphasis on grief, loss and hope that we can one day break the end cycle of violence.

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.
