CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.

What is currently on at London Coliseum (V376)

Xerxes

XerxesT1258282963
With glittering vocal showpieces and moving arias, Handel's slant on the perils of romantic love juxtaposes the heroic and the comic, the serious and the playful. A Persian Ruler's infatuation is triggered by the singing of his general's daughter. So instead of concentrating on his planned campaign against the Greeks, Xerxes prefers to focus on the sexual conquest of his brother's beloved - with unexpected results.
