The first London opera stage to reopen during Covid will be English National Opera, which will perform Mozart’s Requiem at the Coliseum to socially distanced audiences on 6 and 7 November.
ENO Music Director Martyn Brabbins will conduct a reduced orchestra and chorus with soloists Elizabeth Llewellyn, Dame Sarah Connolly, Toby Spence and Brindley Sherratt.
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.’
