History

 

The London Coliseum is one of the biggest venues in terms of capacity in the entire West End. The theatre opened its doors for the first time on Christmas Eve in 1904 with a variety show and variety as an art form coloured the early years of the venue.

The Coliseum was the first theatre to house a revolving stage, making the venue renowned for spectacle, with performing animals and circus acts regularly featuring on the bill.

The Coliseum was famously the home to the last of playwright W.S Gilbert’s productions, The Hooligan (1911), which was staged at the theatre just four months before he passed away.

One of the theatre’s biggest early successes was the musical comedy White Horse Inn which ran for 651 performances from April 1931.

Throughout the 40’s and 50’s the Coliseum was known as a venue for American musicals such as Annie Get Your Gun (1947), Kiss Me Kate (1951) and Guys and Dolls (1953).

The Coliseum became home to Sadler’s Wells Opera Company in 1968, which became the English National Opera in 1974. The ENO still commands use of the Coliseum, with the English National Ballet also taking up residence at the theatre each Christmas with their version of The Nutcracker.

Notable recent ENO productions at the Coliseum have included La Boheme (2012), Die Fledermaus (2013), Madam Butterfly (2013).
