“Really appreciated the Under 16s and Under 21s ticket access for our children as this made the show for our whole family. Loved it”

“I got the tickets through the 16-20 scheme which I think is a really excellent idea. The performance was beautiful, the subtitles made it easier to understand and the singers were so wonderful. I’d highly recommend and will definitely be coming again!”

“The ENO provides the perfect environment for people to get into opera, it felt really welcoming. Being new to opera I am more willing to go regularly because you make it affordable so thank you!”

Under 21s FAQs

Free 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.



You’ll need to be logged into your ENO account to see available seats and book. 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 [email protected].

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

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





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.

You can book one free ticket per production if you’re aged 16-20, or if you’re booking 5-15 child tickets you can book two free tickets with each full-paying adult.
