Nickolaus Lehnhoff returns to direct his highly acclaimed production of Wagner’s masterpiece Parsifal for its final revival. First performed in 1999, Lenhoff’s production was hailed as one of the great Wagnerian stagings of the last two decades, and having travelled to San Francisco, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, the Festspielhaus Baden-Baden and the Gran Teatro del Liceu in Barcelona, returns to the London Coliseum for its first revival. British conductor Mark Wigglesworth leads an outstanding ensemble cast with Stuart Skelton in the title role, Iain Paterson as the fallen King Amfortas, John Tomlinson as Gurnemanz and Iréne Theorin sings the role of Kundry.

ENO’s joyous and iconic interpretation of The Mikado is revived in its 25th anniversary year, complete with high-kicking chorus lines, satirical touches and a wonderfully elegant score. Jonathan Miller’s widely-acclaimed production of Gilbert & Sullivan’s ‘Japanese’ satire takes the story out of the tiny oriental town of Titipu and sets it in the faintly seedy grandeur of a 1930s English hotel – the perfect place for lampooning targets much closer to home.
