The Pearl Fishers

The Pearl Fishers Cherished for its popular duet, The Pearl Fishers offers a compelling tale of friendship tested by love. Amid Bizet’s outpouring of memorable melodies, colourful orchestration and evocative choruses is a story that is not all sweetness and light. A painful love triangle exploring themes of desire and rejection, longing and loss, and religious strictures lies at the heart of The Pearl Fishers – themes explored in Penny Woolcock’s admired original 2010 production. From the mesmerising underwater paradise of its opening sequence to the reality of designer Dick Bird’s shanty town setting, Woolcock’s staging seeks to reveal the truth lurking beneath Bizet’s Orientalist confection.

Benvenuto Cellini

Benvenuto Cellini Unseen in London for many years, and never previously at ENO, Berlioz’s Benvenuto Cellini is forged anew at the London Coliseum by director Terry Gilliam and ENO Music Director Edward Gardner – the identical pairing responsible for the company’s award-winning The Damnation of Faust in 2011. That production unleashed Gilliam’s inexhaustible imagination as a story-teller of the first order, and Benvenuto Cellini offers this theatrical showman an equally rich canvas simply begging for his special flair.

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.
