Ballet troupes are often booked into the spectacular Coliseum during the summer and the Christmas season, and generally any time when the resident English National Opera is not holding down the fort here. The restored Edwardian baroque theater (1904) is known for its magnificent auditorium and a rooftop glass dome. The top dance company to perform here is the English National Ballet (www.ballet.org.uk). Guided tours (which take place on every other Saturday at 11:30
am, when productions are scheduled) cost £10.
