The Merry Widow London Coliseum 1 March to 13 April
Franz Lehár‘s winsome comic opera follows a rich and glamorous young widow as she flirts with a notorious womaniser. This new production is directed by Max Webster, who's better known for theatre productions like the Old Vic's sumptuous 'Fanny and Alexander', or offbeat family musical 'The Lorax' - he should bring out all the fun in this intrigue-filled drama. Kritiina Poska conducts.
The Magic Flute London Coliseum 14 March to 11 April
Avant-garde theatre director Simon McBurney's take on Mozart's 'The Magic Flute' astonished audiences with its realistic magic effects and rich, otherworldly atmosphere. Now it's back at the ENO for a fresh revival. It follows Prince Tamino and his birdcatcher friend on their journey to rescue a lost princess, with the help of some enchanted musical instruments. The cast includes Lucy Crowe, Rupert Charlesworth, and Thomas Oliemans. Ben Gernon conducts.
Mariah Carey Royal Albert Hall 25 May to 27 May
The pop-R&B diva sashays into town for a three-night residency at a suitably regal venue: the iconic Royal Albert Hall. Expect to hear track's from last year's (very good) 'Caution' album along with classics like 'Fantasy', 'Hero' and 'We Belong Together'.
