Coliseum

  • About
    Located in the heart of the West End, the London Coliseum is situated on St Martin's Lane, and is home to the ENO.

    The Coliseum is one of London's largest and best equipped theatres and opened in 1904, designed by theatrical architect Frank Matcham (designer of the London Palladium). Their ambition was to build the largest and finest 'People's palace of entertainment' of its age.

    It underwent extensive renovations between 2000 and 2004 and has the widest proscenium arch in London as well as being one of the earliest to have electric lighting. It was built with a revolving stage although this was rarely used. The theatre retains many of its original features and was Grade II* listed by English Heritage in September 1960.

    The inaugural performance was a variety bill on 24th December 1904. In 1911, dramatist W. S. Gilbert produced his last play here, The Hooligan.

    All ENO operas are sung and surtitled in English.
