About the London Coliseum
The London Coliseum was one of the few theatres in the whole of Europe to fit escalators for patrons. It was also the first theatre in England to have a triple revolving mechanism installed on stage. With room for an audience of 2,359, it remains the capital’s biggest theatre. This is the English National Opera and English National Ballet’s official home, which means past shows at the London Coliseum include regular performances by both organisations.
