According to press materials at the time the iniative was announced, "This partnership will harness the world-class producing and technical teams at ENO and the commercial experience of Grade and Linnit. The aim is to attract even broader audiences to the London Coliseum – which has a long history of staging great musical entertainment – and help to develop audiences for both opera and music theatre."
