The English National Opera has unveiled designs for the restoration of its home at the London Coliseum, built in 1904 by Frank Matcham. Undertaken by the Arts Team at RHWL, which has a reputation for refurbishing theatres of this era, the £41million project will create 40 per cent more public space, introduce new ventilation, improve access and repair the terracotta facade. Work is planned to finish in 2004.
