I went to go see the Magic Flute by W.A Mozart at the English National Opera (The London Colosseum) on the 14th March 2019 (which was the opening night). The art forms it was in were music (the orchestra playing the pieces), drama, dance and...More
My wife and I went to the Coliseum to see The Merry Widow. Technically an operetta.
Our expectations were low, but we thought we would try.
The theatre was beautiful and the staff welcoming and helpful. The show programme was a very good price and...More
The building is exceptional, the history is tangible and makes you feel lucky to be there. Somehow when we arrived we popped into the shop and then in the enterance I had my bag searched, all fine. However we then went up to the bar...More
We visited here to see the Merry Widow. It is a great show, great music, great cast and a lot of fun. Recommend it highly.
The theatre itself has undergone renovation and change since we were there last and the foyer has been opened up,...More
First time at the Coliseum and we were most impressed. Went to see Akhnaten, Phillip Glass and what a performance. The whole cast were excellent and made all the better by the wonderful surroundings. A truly amazing experience.
The interior of the Coliseum is beautiful, stunning reliefs in the opera hall. I sat on the very last row of the balcony. Although the distance to stage is quite large, the view is not really that bad, of course details can not be made...More
I saw Swan Lake here before Christmas and despite being in the 'Gods' it was a fabulous setting for Swan Lake. Dancers from Royal English National Ballet are breathtaking (sadly performance ruined by 4 3-5 year olds and their mums not knowing how to act)....More
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated
by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.

These prices are excessive. I'm not sure it is a con unless the price lists show the published price to be different or the staff lied to you, but it does demonstrate the excessive costs of drinks in theatres and it is... More
These prices are excessive. I'm not sure it is a con unless the price lists show the published price to be different or the staff lied to you, but it does demonstrate the excessive costs of drinks in theatres and it is unfair. Had you bought both of your drink orders downstairs, you would have paid significantly more for your drinks than we paid for the two tickets for both my wife and I to see the performance. As with Enfield Peter, we tend to have a drink before we go. The timings of evening West End shows tend to be such that a nice meal with a bottle of wine can often be fitted in and costs about the same for a couple as two pairs of drinks at the theatre. The total cost for both of us to see Chess, have a pasta meal, bottle of wine and dessert at Bella Italia came in at just under £100, which is as it should be for a night out.
