Went to see La traviata last night 13th April. First time I have been to an opera. The building is beautiful and a typical opera House. The orchestra was amazing. The lead who played Violetta was very disappointing. Couldn't hear her in the first act....More

Last week we saw 'Marriage of Figaro' at the London Coliseum, home to the English National Opera company. Tickets for performances there aren't cheap, we paid £89.00 per seat for mid Dress Circle seats, which actually is fairly typical theatre price for central London. You...More

A World-renowned opera house, showing Marriage of Figaro which we enjoyed enormously, also the restaurant which though very small is well run and ideal.

Beautiful theatre and Mozart's masterpiece, what more could you ask for? I wish it had been performed in the original Italian libretto, but I guess you can't please everyone. Lucy Crowe was superb as the Countess and was for me, the stand out performer

La Traviata is certainly one of my favourite operas and the ENO really did it justice. With the leading roles of Alfredo and Violetta taken up by two breathtaking singers, with particular emphasis on Alfredo. The story line follows the fanicful and ubiquitous route of...More
