Mary, Queen Of Scots Tickets - London Coliseum

The critically acclaimed modern opera, Mary, Queen Of Scots makes its much anticipated ENO premiere at the London Coliseum in 2025. The opera tells a story that still resonates 500 years later. With hostile English forces located on every side, Mary I of Scotland attempts to secure a future for herself and her nation.

Thea Musgrave, one of Scotland’s most esteemed composers brilliantly captures the drama of the period in an atmospheric and thrilling score rooted in the rough-hewn Highlands of the Elizabethan era.

Caught between her scheming half-brother, her drunken husband, and her untrustworthy lover, Mary I of Scotland must carve out a way to protect her nation and preserve her Catholic faith.

Each conversation reveals a new treacherous twist as Mary is misled or betrayed by those closest to her until one final miscalculation causes her to fall into the arms of her Protestant cousin.

The London Coliseum is a large theatre located in St Martin's Lane close to Trafalgar Square and has a capacity of 2263 seats on four levels of seating.

The best seats in the theatre can be found in the centre of the Stalls as unlike many opera houses, the sound within the auditorium does not improve in the higher tiers, so seats in the Stalls are recommended in terms of both sight and sound. The Stalls also offers access to the Veuve Cliquot champagne bar for a luxury interval refreshment. For patrons who prefer to look down from an elevated position, the front of the Dress Circle offers a spectacular cinematic view of the stage.

The theatre regularly offers various schemes (including 'day tickets') to ensure that cheap tickets to Mary, Queen Of Scots should be available for most performances, particularly in the Dress and Upper Circle sections.  The front-side seats in each section are usually better value for money than rear-central seats, as views in these sections can be slightly obstructed from overhangs from the various circles.

How Can I Book Cheap Tickets To The London Coliseum?

Although most show are only scheduled to play for a limited season at the London Coliseum, tickets are usually  in great demand for the larger productions, especially if they feature big name actors in the cast, meaning that bargain hunters will need to avoid weekend performances and be a little creative with the seating to secure maximum value.  The good news for those on a budget is that the London Coliseum is a huge venue that features four tiers that will need to be filled for 8 shows per week and this should mean that midweek performances will offer up some decent prices in the cheaper sections of the theatre for even the most popular productions.  For hard core last-minute bargain hunters, the London Coliseum does offer a small selection of 'day tickets' which are sold at a discount of the morning of the performance for those prepared to queue up and try their luck!

Are The Balcony And Upper Circle Tickets To The London Coliseum Good Value?

Although the London Coliseum is such a huge venue situated on four different levels there are sections in the centre blocks of both the balcony and upper circle that despite the great height do offer completely clear views of the stage.  Both upper circle and balcony tickets can offer up good value for money for those on a budget but it is strongly advised that customers check the seating plan thoroughly before booking to ensure complete transparency over their purchase as in both sections some of the seats towards the sides will feature slight restrictions to the view.

Can I Book Discount Tickets To The London Coliseum Online?

With so many seats to fill for 8 separate shows every week it is entirely possible that towards the end of a run that some discount tickets could be available for midweek shows and matinees that sometimes feature understudy's in the starring roles. While this is of course not guaranteed, theatre producers do tend to review availability on a weekly basis and price tickets accordingly so checking prices online on a regular basis can bring big savings for those not nailed down to specific dates.

Should I Avoid Tickets To The London Coliseum That Have A Restricted View?

In a theatre the size of the London Coliseum it is not surprising that there will be certain productions where some seats will feature slight restrictions to the view of the stage.  Tickets in the stalls are located in three different sections and the only restrictions come on the far sides where the end of the stage is obscured.  There are no issues from the overhang from the circle and thankfully also no pillars to negotiate.  In the dress circle there are five different blocks and again it is only the seats on the far sides that feature some slight restrictions to the view but these are minimal and there are no issues from the overhang from the upper circle.  In the upper circle there are three different blocks of seats and there are some minor restrictions to the view on the sides and sometimes minor issues with the sound being slightly muffled towards the rear by the overhang from the balcony.  The balcony level is situated very high up on the third floor and features no less than seven different blocks of seats.  Because of the height and distance from the stage, seats in this part of the theatre should only be considered by hard core bargain hunters and it is strongly recommended to study the seating plan thoroughly before making your purchase as 'cheap' is not always a bargain!
