Lynette H Posted April 29, 2014 Share Posted April 29, 2014 A few interesting news items John Berry, the ENO’s artistic director, assured opera-goers that the musicals will be staged during periods when the Coliseum would usually be rented to outside companies – meaning no operas are being sacrificed to make way for the more mainstream productions. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/music/opera/10795780/ENO-moves-into-the-West-End-musical-business.html "At the moment,” he adds, again pointing out a faint absurdity that the arts world has taken for granted, “we rent out the theatre for 17 weeks a year. I will take back some of those weeks to put on some great musicals. They will contribute financially and then they can have another life in a West End theatre for a longer run. But in the Coliseum they will make use of our orchestra and expertise." http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/theatre-dance/features/the-london-coliseum-a-revolution-at-the-opera-9298766.html I wonder what this might mean for future dance productions at the Coliseum.
