As spectacular from the inside as it is outside, you’ll find the London Coliseum Theatre on historic St Martin’s Lane. Originally designed by Frank Matcham for Sir Oswald Stoll, the venue came into life with a specific ambition: to be the biggest people’s palace of entertainment of its time. With 2,359 seats, this is London’s biggest theatre. In 1968 it reopened as the home of Sadler’s Wells Opera, which eventually became the English National Opera in 1974. The opera company bought the freehold outright in 1992 it was sympathetically and beautifully renovated between 2000 and 2004. Today the venue is still dedicated to the public, thanks to the ENO’s commitment to creating new opera audiences through performances which are affordable and accessible to everyone. They have a worldwide reputation and enjoy artistic partnerships with organisations like the Metropolitan Opera of New York. Fancy some top class opera? We provide the full range of tickets right here.
