The Royal Opera: La Boheme – PUCCINI

Categories: , ,

Puccini’s passionate opera is conducted by Antonio Pappano and stars a superb young cast including Nicole Car, Michael Fabiano and Mariusz Kwiecie, in a new production by Richard Jones.


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.

Jones brings his characteristically acute insight to this much-loved classic, visualized in Stewart Laing’s spectacular 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 first performed in Covent Garden in 1897 and has had more than five hundred performances there since.
