English National Opera to reopen the London Coliseum with performances of Mozart’s Requiem

Members of the award winning ENO Chorus and Orchestra will be conducted by
ENO Music Director, Martyn Brabbins and will be joined by four soloists –
Elizabeth Llewellyn (soprano), Dame Sarah Connolly (Mezzo Soprano), Toby
Spence (Tenor) and Brindley Sherratt (Bass).

Annilese Miskimmon, Artistic Director, ENO, said: ‘It is important to
acknowledge the full impact of Covid-19, and the loss we have suffered as a
country. Mozart’s Requiem is the perfect music to provide a moment of
reflection for our audiences, for a collective moment of remembrance. It
will be a moment of great happiness for ENO to welcome people back to the
London Coliseum again.’

Martyn Brabbins, Music Director, ENO, said: ‘This period without the
opportunity to make music come alive, both for the ENO orchestra and
chorus, and for our loyal and supportive audience, has been unbearably
difficult. These performances of Mozart’s moving Requiem, with four
wonderful soloists, will bring us all joyously back together.’

There will be matinee and evening performances at the London Coliseum on 6
and 7 November. Ticket details will be announced in due course.

Please note that if government restrictions mean that a socially distanced
audience are not able to watch the performance, ENO will livestream this
