What productions can I use my free/discount tickets for?

Free/discount tickets are available to book online for all ENO opera productions at the London Coliseum including relaxed performances. These tickets are not valid for non-ENO opera productions at the London Coliseum, including musicals, dance and English National Ballet.

I can’t see my free/discounted tickets on the seating plan – how do I book?

You’ll need to be logged into your ENO account to see available seats and book. If you’re under 21 you should have received details on how to book with a discount code via email – please check your junk mail if you are unable to find it or email under35s@eno.org.

To find your free/discounted tickets, select a show and a performance date and go through to the ticket options to check availability.

*Aged 21 – 34? Join our Under 35s membership scheme for discount opera tickets.

Are there any ID checks at the venue?

You may be asked to show that you are aged 16 – 20 when attending, so you should bring along proof of ID.

Who can I bring as a guest?

Your Under 21s membership only entitles you to one free ticket per production. If you’re attending with another 16 – 20 year old they will have to join Under 21s in order to benefit from the same discount.

How many free/discounted tickets can I buy?

You can book up to two tickets per production if you’re aged 21-34, or if you’re under 21 you can book one free ticket per production.
