ENO has enjoyed a close affiliation with the USA since the company’s first ground-breaking tour in 1984. Many of our operas are produced in collaboration with American opera houses and American singers, directors and conductors continue to play a vital role in many of ENO’s productions. Join us for a bespoke series of very special American Friends events.
See an ENO production with the American Friends, tour the set and enjoy drinks and canapés in a private room. Ticket price includes an excellent seat.
