As it reopens, the English National Opera (ENO) is expanding its range of free and cheap tickets offers.
They’ve previously offered free tickets to under-18s in their balcony on Fridays, Saturdays and opening nights — and this is now being extended to under-21s as well, and will be for seats throughout the auditorium.
The ENO is also significantly increasing the availability of discounted tickets across the season and auditorium.
There are four seating levels to choose from at the London Coliseum. Starting at ground level they are Stalls, Dress Circle, Upper Circle and Balcony.
A new scheme for people aged 21-35 will offer performances for £35 in the Stalls, £25 in the Dress Circle, or £15 in the Upper Circle at the London Coliseum. They have the opportunity to book up to two discounted tickets per production, with some restrictions.
For everyone aged over 35 years, opera performance tickets will continue to start from £10 and discounted on the day tickets will continue to be available.
General booking for the 2021/22 season opens on Wed 2nd June at 10am.
