Cheap The Pearl Fishers tickets at the London ColiseumTheatre
While well-known as a film-maker of integrity and distinction, Woolcock has also made important forays into opera: in addition to The Pearl Fishers, she received plaudits for her staging of John Adams’s Doctor Atomic at ENO and the Metropolitan Opera. For this first revival of The Pearl Fishers, soprano Sophie Bevan, a former ENO Harewood Artist and a firm audience favourite, makes her role debut as Leïla. Vying for her affections as Nadir and Zurga are tenor John Tessier, who was a loveable Nemorino in Jonathan Miller’s The Elixir of Love at the London Coliseum, and current ENO Harewood Artist, baritone George von Bergen. Rising star conductor Jean-Luc Tingaud, a specialist in French 19th-century repertoire, makes his UK operatic debut with this eagerly awaited revival.
Cherished for its popular duet, The Pearl Fishers offers a compelling tale of friendship tested by love. Amid Bizet’s outpouring of memorable melodies, colourful orchestration and evocative choruses is a story that is not all sweetness and light. A painful love triangle exploring themes of desire and rejection, longing and loss, and religious strictures lies at the heart of The Pearl Fishers – themes explored in Penny Woolcock’s admired original 2010 production. From the mesmerising underwater paradise of its opening sequence to the reality of designer Dick Bird’s shanty town setting, Woolcock’s staging seeks to reveal the truth lurking beneath Bizet’s Orientalist confection.

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.
