Daniel Kramer to lead ENO

First Published 29 April 2016, Last Updated 29 April 2016

Award-winning opera and theatre director Daniel Kramer has been named the new Artistic Director of English National Opera.

The British-American director will take up the helm of the London Coliseum’s esteemed company from 1 August 2016 following former Artistic Director John Berry’s 2015 departure.

Speaking about his forthcoming role, Kramer said: “I am honoured to join this wonderful Company. The core of English National Opera is its unique Company spirit – its award-winning orchestra and chorus and its incredible staff, stage and house crew. My intention is to champion this family and to inspire audiences night after night with a thrilling programme of musical diversity, attracting audiences from opera to operetta through to popular music.

“We will work, too, with the wider community outside the Coliseum, to develop emerging talent and new audiences. We are here to play and sing for you. I hope you will join us in this new chapter of our evolution.”

Kramer first worked for the ENO in 2008 when he was selected as part of ENO’s young director’s initiative for which he directed the South Bank Show Award-winning Punch And Judy at the Young Vic. His other ENO credits include Bartok’s Duke Bluebeard’s Castle and the forthcoming summer production of Wagner’s Tristan And Isolde.

Crossing the worlds of both theatre and opera, Kramer is a former Associate at the Gate Theatre and Young Vic, as well a Creative Associate at the Royal Shakespeare Company.

The venue’s 2018/2019 season will be Kramer’s first programme as Artistic Director.

We are now cancelling all performances up until and including 31 May 2020 to help us process existing bookings whilst we wait for further clarity from the government in terms of when we will be able to reopen.

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked directly with the theatre or show website for an affected performance, please be assured that they will contact you directly to arrange an exchange for a later date, a credit note/voucher or a refund. If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please do not contact your credit card company as that will slow the process down and put an additional burden on our box office and ticket agent teams.

In order for us to serve our audiences the best we can, please do not get in touch with your point of sale if you have booked for performances after 31 May. Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.

We look forward to welcoming you back into our theatres as soon as we are allowed to resume performances. In the meantime stay safe and healthy.
