Cheap The Magic Flute tickets at the London Coliseum
A jewel in ENO's repertoire since 1988, this spectacular staging of Mozart's final opera has thrilled audiences of all ages, and now returns, complete with giant serpent, dancing bears and live performing birds.
A mix of fairy- tale adventure, knockabout farce, moral allegory and marvellous music - including the thrilling Queen of the Night aria - The Magic Flute was premiered just ten weeks before its composer's tragically early death. It was the biggest popular success of his short life, as well as the most moving of all his operas.
The Magic Flute presents a mixture of the philosophical, the romantic and the farcical. It can be a challenge to bring these elements together cohesively, but this production's strong cast succeeds admirably in doing so.
The plot draws on the enlightenment philosophies of 18th Century Europe while remaining entirely accessible. Sarastro battles for wisdom and reason against the Queen of Night, while young Prince Tamino undertakkes initiation rites in his search for acceptance and true love. With it's panto-like storyline, catchy tunes, broad comedy and profound humanity, The Magic Flute is the perfect introduction to opera for newcomers.

London Coliseum Seat Plan
Choose your seats from the plan of the London Coliseum above. If you're making your first visit to a theatre or you're simply unsure about where you'd most like to be seated, here's a quick guide to help you choose:
The Stalls are level with and closest to the stage. The Dress Circle (or simply the Circle) is the level of seating above the Stalls. The Upper Circle or Grand Circle is above the Dress Circle. The Balcony, above the Upper Circle, is the highest level of seating.
The threesixty Theatre is situated within Kensington Gardens in Hyde Park, close to High Street Kensington tube station. This new outdoor venue was purpose-built to house its current production, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.
This unusual circular space seats 1480 people and is built in a 'theatre-in-the-round' format. This means it has fewer rows and thus creates a more intimate theatrical experience. The spacious, newly constructed theatre tent has been carefully designed so that sound travels to all corners - and it allows lots of leg room for taller visitors too.
The threesixty Theatre is weather-proofed, so there’s zero possibility of the show being a washout, regardless of what weather conditions the notoriously unpredictable British summer may bring.
Both the inner auditorium and the imposing external structure from which it is suspended are carefully designed to allow everyone in attendance a 360 degree view, with none of the sight obstructions associated with tent-poles in traditional circus or theatre tents.
The cupola of the tent (that’s ‘roof’ to the likes of us) contains ten tons of technical equipment, including lights, sound and air conditioning. This element of the structure takes an entire day to build before the main tent goes up.
The theatre is located in historic Kensington Gardens. This area was once part of an extended Hyde Park that King Henry VIII used for deer chasing.
In the 17th century, husband-and-wife monarchs William III and Mary II took the throne and bought the home that became Kensington Palace, which they complemented with the most exquisitely beautiful gardens imaginable. The gardens were handed down through generations of the Royal Family and gradually turned into the park we see today.
Whilst visiting the threesixty Theatre, stop and take a look at the gardens’ beautiful features, which include the famous bronze statue of Peter Pan, the Italian Gardens, the Albert Memorial and the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Playground.
The layout, size and unique location of the threesixty Theatre add a very real sense of enchantment to the magical The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
