  • English National Opera: Benvenuto Cellini at London Coliseum

    Opera

    From to

    London Coliseum WC2N 4ES [map]

    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.

  • English National Opera: The Pearl Fishers at London Coliseum

    Opera

    From to

    London Coliseum WC2N 4ES [map]

    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.
