Blur and Gorillaz mainman Damon Albarn's new opera Doctor Dee is to be given a run at London's Coliseum next summer.

The opera, which ran in Manchester earlier this summer as part of the Manchester International Festival and received considerable praise from critics, details the life of 16th century scientist John Dee.

Doctor Dee will open at the Coliseum on June 25 next year and will then be performed on June 26, 28, 29, July 4, 6 and 7. All the performances begin at 7.30pm, with a matinee performance also booked for July 7 at 2.30pm.

A live recording of the opera, which features Albarn singing 10 songs from a position a third level above the stage, is due to be released in the spring.

Albarn, who made his live debut with his new band Rocketjuice And The Moon over the weekend, will also perform a show with The Good, The Bad & The Queen at the capital's Coronet venue on November 10, their first live show since 2008.

Tickets for Doctor Dee will go onsale on Friday (November 4). For more information about the show and booking tickets, visit ENO.org.
