    The Coliseum Theatre is one of London's largest and best equipped theatres, opening in 1904 adjacent to Trafalgar Square. It was the creation of the most powerful theatre manager of the day, Oswald Stoll, and the foremost theatre architect, Frank Matcham, who also designed the London Palladium. Their ambition was to build the largest and finest 'People's palace of entertainment' of its age. It is currently the home of the English National Opera.

    Any particular reason? I do have a photo of it taken from the other side, which I may post at some point (not quite what you mean by stereo, I know).

    I have spent many a happy evening in the Colloseum watching and listening to the English National Opera..

    I've only been to it twice - once for Adams' Nixon in China and once for The Magic Flute.

    The globe actually revolves.
