La Bohème

Composer: Giacomo Puccini    
Director: Richard Jones
Conductor: Antonio Pappano
Lead Cast: Nicole Car, Michael Fabiano, Mariusz Kwiecien and Nadine Sierra  

When Rodolfo, a penniless poet, meets Mimì, a seamstress, they fall instantly in love. But their happiness is threatened when Rodolfo learns that Mimì is gravely ill.

Acclaimed director Richard Jones (Boris Godunov, Il trittico) directs a new production of Puccini’s La bohème.  Irresistible in its witty, passionate blend of comedy and tragedy, the opera focusses on the lives of a group of young artists as they eke out an existence on the bohemian fringes of Paris, the capital of the 19th century.  Jones brings his characteristically acute insight to this much-loved classic, visualized in Stewart Laing’s spectacular, stylized 1850s setting.

Puccini’s romantic depiction of bohemian Paris, with memorable music and a love story drawn from everyday life, has captivated audiences around the world, making La bohème one of the best-loved of all operas. It was 1st performed in Covent Garden in 1897 and has had more than five hundred performances there since.  Approximately 164 minutes including an intermission.
