Tips

  • The Coliseum opened in 1904 as a peoples palace of entertainment. During WW2 it became a canteen for air raid wardens, and Winston Churchill once addressed them from the theatre stage.
  • Right on the top floor, off the room adjoining the balcony bar, is a 'glass' area on the roof, almost overlooking Trafalgar Square. Great atmosphere to sup pre-opera, pre-ballet, or interval drinks.
  • The front row is where you want to be if you wish to see some of the amazing orchestras!
  • Catch 'The Nutcraker' ballet. Very moving, and very traditional.
  • Home of English National Opera, whose productions are sung in English. Fantastic new works as well as all the favourites!
  • Queue for returns and get to see the UK's best English-language opera.
  • Cadeiras muito desconfortveis! timo teatro para quem tem no mximo 1,50 de altura!
  • ENO Death in Venice. Amazing lighting, choreography and sets to support great performances.
  • 14 December: Watch The Nutcracker. The English National Ballet has been staging productions of The Nutcracker for more than 60 years, and continues to do so annually, the company's most popular show.
