JONATHAN MILLER’s CLASSIC IS THIS SUMMER’s PERFECT ROMANTIC EXPERIENCE
Puccini’s La bohème is one of the most popular and captivating operas of all-time. With its emotionally charged story of Mimi and Rodolfo’s fleeting love affair and some of the great Italian composer’s most ravishingly beautiful music, it never fails to move and enchant.
‘An evening I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to any newcomer who wants to know what opera is all about’ Mail on Sunday
Jonathan Miller’s acclaimed production authentically evokes Paris of the 1930’s, drawing inspiration from the atmospheric photography of Brassai and Cartier-Bresson. Period sets and costumes by Isabella Bywater vividly bring to life the spectacle of the lively street scenes in Café Momus and are the perfect backdrop for the intimate and poignant love scenes in the artist’s freezing garret.
This much anticipated revival features a stellar cast with star soprano, Kate Valentine and charismatic Italianate tenor Gwyn Hughes Jones as the fated lovers.
