Tickets for the English National Opera’s Man of La Mancha revival at the London Coliseum are now available! This Tony Award-winning musical is back in London’s West End for the first time in over 40 years! The triumphant return of Man of La Mancha is set to star multi-award-winning actor Kelsey Grammer.

After their highly successful productions of Carousel, Chess, Sweeney Todd, and Sunset Boulevard that received rave reviews from both audiences and critics alike, Michael Linnit and Michael Grade are back at it again with Man of La Mancha, another powerhouse collaboration with the English National Opera. This semi-staged concert production is set to star American actor Kelsey Grammer, whose many awards include two Tonys, and Australian-American opera soprano Danielle de Niese. De Niese will be sharing the role of Aldonza with stunning vocalist and actress Cassidy Janson. They will be joined by Only Fools and Horses star Nicholas Lyndhurst playing the Innkeeper/Governor.

Taking inspiration from Miguel de Cervantes’ seventeenth-century literary masterpiece, Don Quixote, and set during the violent Spanish Inquisition, Man of La Mancha follows failed playwright and tax collector Miguel de Cervantes as he is thrown into prison for attempting to tax a monastery. As he awaits trial, a kangaroo court threatens to confiscate Cervantes’ precious and uncompleted manuscript for Don Quixote. While giving his defence, Cervantes, along with his servant, suddenly transform into the characters of the very book he is trying to save. As both of their imaginations run wild, the duo, now believing themselves to be Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, do everything in their power to destroy evil, set things right and restore the age of chivalry that has long thought to be dead.

Written by Dale Wasserman and featuring spectacular music by Mitch Leigh, you can look forward to such toe-tapping numbers as ‘Little Bird’, ‘I, Don Quixote’, ‘The Impossible Dream’, ‘I Really Like Him’, and ‘Dulcinea’. And with lyrics by Joe Darion, you'll be dancing and singing along to the chivalry beat long after the curtain falls! 

After four long decades, Man of La Mancha is finally back in the West End next spring! As a result of its 40-year hiatus, The Man of La Mancha tickets are guaranteed to be among the hottest West End tickets of the season.

The Man of La Manch was an excellent production, we thoroughly enjoyed it . Would highly recommend it.

Jason Bukin13th June

Great show, I had great time there

Jane Elliott13th June

to be honest, we were disappointed, whilst the story was told adequately we were expecting a more Spanish flavour both musically and visually

Cassandra V Stone12th June

Great show. Kesley Grammar can sing.

Susmit More11th June

Excellent play,throughly enjoyed specially with free upgrades ??

Koen VDW11th June

niet de grote theatrale effecten die je kan verwachten bij een musical, maar zeer goed live optreden van het orkest. eens je mee was in het verhaal, was het zeer mooi gebracht, op een hedendaagser manier, knap gezongen, etc. we hebben er zeker van genoten, en het is de moeite zeker waard, al is het nog maar om de prachtige setting in een theater vlakbij Trafalgar Square. we waren zeer tevreden, maar kochten de kaartjes pas dag voordien voor 37 pond, want anders is het aardig duur, maar dan nog zijn geld waard als je ziet hoeveel mensen hier aan werken !

nooooooooooooooooooo

Mrs Karen Smith-Young10th June

Fantastic show in a beautiful theatre in the heart of the West End

Helen De Burgh10th June

Dreary, the same set, the actors need to progect the dialogue out to the audience, the chorus should be dressed in PERIOD peasant costumes, sorry to say most disappointing.

Andreas10th June

We very much enjoyed the performance, unfortunately the theatre was not fully booked

Mary Brown10th June

Fabulous show - everyone was superb! We enjoyed it immensely. Great!

Nick Smith10th June

What an amazing night we had, a superb production that was able to make me smile and was also able to bring a tear to my eye. Excellent performances from Kelsey Grammar, Nicholas Lyndhurst, Cassidy Janson and Peter Polycarpou most able and abetted by the supporting cast. Excellent choreography and a stunning set which effortlessly switched from the 'play within a play' to the dank desolation of a 'prison'. All this without even mentioning the awesome orchestration. Thank you for a superb evening which will long live in the memory. Nick and Arvi.
