Death in Venice:
Death in Venice plays at London Coliseum
St. Martin's Lane, London, WC2N 4ES
Seating chart & directions
Two unspoken themes run throughout Britten's much-admired opera: the impossible passion that a troubled writer forms for a fellow hotel guest, and the cholera epidemic which the authorities are all too keen to hush up. In Death in Venice
, Britten revisits the subject of corruption of youth and innocence that so fascinated him and delivers a haunting theatrical experience of consummate power.
Deborah Warner's production of Britten's final opera celebrates the composer's centenary year and reaffirms ENO’s position as the world’s leading producer of his operas. This production reunites award-winning director Warner with ENO Music Director Edward Gardner.
Scheduled for June 2013.
