The London Coliseum is home to the English National Opera (ENO), celebrated for making opera modern and more relevant, as all productions are sung in English. The building, built in 1904 and lovingly restored 100 years later, is very impressive. The English National Ballet also does regular performances at the Coliseum. Tickets range from £12 to £99.

After several years in the wasteland, the ENO has been receiving better reviews and welcoming much bigger audiences under the tutelage of music director Edward Gardner (his tenure, at the time of research, was due to end soon).
