ENO's Royal Welcome

6th March 2020 in News

ENO were delighted to welcome our Patron HRH The Princess Alexandra to the London Coliseum for a performance of Puccini’s Madam Butterfly last night.

The Princess Alexandra has been the Patron of English National Opera since 1981, and has been an avid supporter of both ENO and the arts in general.

Greeted by ENO’s Chairman Dr Harry Brunjes and Chief Executive Stuart Murphy, the Princess met a number of ENO staff and arts industry figures including ENO’s Head of Movement Carol Grant, Stage Manager Rosalind Davis and Company Manager Nicole Richardson.

Natalya Romaniw, who sings the title role for the first time in London, met the Princess following her performance, along with ENO Music Director Martyn Brabbins who conducted the production. Martin was also made a Fellow of the Royal College of Music earlier this week by HRH The Prince of Wales.
