THE BOLSHOI ON TOUR Coliseum, WC2 (0171 632 8300) Tues-Sat

In London for a short residency with conductor Mark Ermler, the Bolshoi are outclassed these days by the Kirov, so don't expect too much of their Boris Godunov (Tues-Thurs) or Love for Three Oranges (Sat). Be prepared for creaky but colourful productions and voices that will smother you with love. MW
