CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.

What is currently on at London Coliseum (V376)


The story begins with the wedding of Orfeo, a musician of almost magical power, to Euridice. The announcement of Euridice's sudden death cuts the wedding celebrations brutally short. For Orfeo, who had loved her for so long, the news is almost beyond endurance. He resolves to do the seemingly impossible: to return her to life, at whatever the cost.
Music Monteverdi
