KPMG brings the curtain down for ENO at the London Coliseum

A feasibility study, project managed by KPMG, has concluded that relocation of the English National Opera from its present home at the Coliseum to a purpose-built theatre in central London would be the best safeguard for the future provision of affordable and accessible opera and dance for the capital.

The study, which was led by Laurence Newman, KPMG partner for leisure, tourism and arts, involved 15 other firms, ranging from architects to market researchers. It considered two options: extensive development of the London Coliseum and relocation to an alternative, accessible site.

It estimated that the first option would require an investment of u70m and concluded that this would not be a responsible use of public funds.

Moreover deficiencies in terms of facilities would continue to saddle ENO with unacceptably high operating costs.

The study, which drew up a short-list of ten potential locations for ENO, was paid for by #1.378m from the Arts Council Lottery Fund.
