Spirited Away

Until August 24, 2024

The stage adaptation of Studio Ghibli's timelessly beautiful anime movie Spirited Away comes to the London Coliseum for its European premiere in 2024. Based loosely on themes from Japanese folklore, the original movie is arguably seen as director Hayao Miyazaki's seminal work, bringing the studio's jaw-droppingly captivating animated stories, full of intrigue and otherworldly charm, to a wider audience. With the roaringly successful 2022 stage adaptation of Ghibli's My Neighbour Totoro proving beyond any doubt that their enchanting tales can translate to the stage to thrilling effect, Spirited Away continues the studio's breaking of new ground at the theatre.

La Boheme

September 26 - October 19, 2024

Puccini's gift for writing emotional music is brought to the fore in La Boheme's tale of doomed love in poverty-stricken Paris. This powerfully popular opera returns for another revival of Jonathan Miller's lovingly intimate staging, whose 2009 opening night made broadcasting history when Sky Arts simultaneously screened live both the onstage action and the backstage excitement. Joshua Blue makes his ENO debut as Rodolpho, alongside Nadine Benjamin.

October 11 - 31, 2024

Menace seems to haunt every corner of Bly House, the new home of a young governess, charged with looking after the manor's two orphaned children, wards of an unseen and un-caring guardian. As chilling tension grows, the governess must face up to the ominous spirits before she becomes one herself. The ENO lay on the spooks with this evocative new production of Britten's adaptation of Henry James' The Turn of the Screw, directed and designed by Isabella Bywater.

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.
