Foursquare 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.
  • verve cliquot champagne bar + the singing isn't bad either lol
  • Sometimes excellent, always worth going, cheaper and more innovative than the Royal Opera House.
  • The spiritus classicus home of the English National Opera. Incredible architecture, home to 2016's acclaimed London revival of Sunset Boulevard.
  • Good shows
  • Classic theatre, gilded interior are worth seeing
  • The most beautiful theatre in London, inside and out
  • Great venue with affordable pricing (check time out London for offers). Ballet and opera sometimes sung in English or original language.
  • Every single thing is amazing! I am absolutely amazed!
  • Magic venue - just beautiful . If you want ice cream at interval (& you know you do!) go all the way back out to the foyer for shorter queues.
  • Was here for swan lake
  • From an architects POV: superb. But the opera (Lady Macbeth of ) was pretty boring.
