Definitely a highlight of our events year: Under a Tenner is going back to the Coliseum for another of the great operas, and a personal favourite: Mozart's The Magic Flute.
Performed by the English National Opera, the performance lasts almost 3 hours: pure Mozart through and through. And lots of vibrato for your buck.
We have 10 seats, dead centre of the second row on the balcony, B17 to B28 (but not B21/22 - we'll make friends with the couple sat there, whoever they are).
Bought at a special low price, this means again we can offer tickets at a super bargain price. £8.40 plus £3 booking/paypal fees.
If you miss out on our tickets (I only have 10) you can alternatively buy balcony seats online at the ENO; they are available for now, but please note, this production will sell out nearer the date and buying via the ENO will cost more. Standard price for row C is £36 per seat plus £1.75 per transaction.
If you do buy your own ticket via the ENO, then let me know and I'm very happy to add you to our group.
Please note, all row A/B seats are termed restricted view because of the balcony handrail.

Mozart's beloved magical fairy tale follows Prince Tamino and bird-catcher Papageno on an adventure to rescue Princess Pamina. On their journey they meet fantastical creatures and face unexpected trials and challenges. The opera is a lighthearted but profound examination of man's search for love and his struggle to attain wisdom and virtue.
For this new production of The Magic Flute, Complicite's artistic director Simon McBurney has investigated the circumstances, inspiration and dramatic language of the opera's origins in order to reveal fresh layers of meaning in a production that offers a remarkable visual and physical response to Mozart's theatrical genius.
Conducted by Gergely Madaras (ENO Charles Mackerras Fellow), The Magic Flute features ENO Harewood Artist Ben Johnson as Tamino, American soprano Devon Guthrie as Pamina, Roland Wood as the bird-catcher Papageno and James Creswell as Sarastro.
