American Friends of ENO events

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.
