The Perfect AmericanFollowing its world premiere at Teatro Real in Madrid, Philip Glass's 2011 opera The Perfect American will make its London Coliseum debut this June. Based on Peter Stephan Jungk's 2005 novel, it is a fictionalised vision of Walt Disney's last few years, seen from the perspective of a disgruntled former employee. The opera opens with a scene around Disney's death bed and progresses into a flashback that includes surreal imaginings of Abraham Lincoln and Andy Warhol representing the unimaginable and, at times, disturbing aspects of Disney's life and American culture. The Walt Disney Company puts limitations on the use of its characters so director Phelim McDermott and his Improbable theatre company have created sinister interpretations of Mickey, Minnie and friends. John Berry, ENO's artistic director, states the characters are still recognisable and would appeal to children but "in a nightmarish sort of way". Book tickets for The Perfect American at the London Coliseum.

This impressive theatre, which started its life as a venue for variety shows, is now - conversely - indistinguishable from its artistically first-class company in residence, the English National Opera.
