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.

  • Satyagraha: 14th-28th October
  • HMS Pinafore: 29th October – 11th December
  • The Valkyrie: 19th November – 10th December
  • La bohème: 31st January – 27th February 2022
  • The Cunning Little Vixen: 18th February – 1st March 2022
  • Così fan tutte: 10th – 22nd March 2022
  • The Handmaid’s Tale: 4th – 14th April 2022

Concessionary standby tickets are also offered for some ENO performances.

These are subject to availability and will be confirmed from midday on the day of the performance. If standby tickets are offered, they are available to senior citizens, students, Universal Credit recipients, and Westminster City Save holders. Standby tickets must be booked in person in the three hours before a performance.

This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what your read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you

    Thank you for letting us know about this. I had no idea that ENO had an under 35 discount theme. I have now signed up.
