The London Coliseum is London’s largest and arguably most luxurious theatre. The 2,359-seater venue is the home of the English National Opera as well as the London base of the English National Ballet meaning that many of the world’s greatest performers have graced its stage. Opening in 1904 it had a clear goal of offering audiences both highbrow and lowbrow entertainment. For decades it did just that, hosting a wide range of variety shows, stage plays and musical theatre including Broadway hits such as Guys and Dolls. Nowadays the English National Opera is the full-time producing company at the theatre, presenting a uniquely extensive range of opera with an emphasis on theatricality, originality, and quality. Its excellent location, in the heart of the West End, will also give you easy access to attractions such as Covent Garden, Leicester Square with its galleries, and the South Bank. It is also just minutes away from lots of popular restaurants and pubs so it is ideally located if you’re looking to combine your visit with some sightseeing or pre- or post-theatre drinks.
