A brilliant new interpretation of one of opera’s most popular and unforgettable stories.
The moment Mimì knocks on the door of her neighbour Rodolfo sparks the start of a journey which will take the couple – and you – through the full range of human emotions.
From the irrepressible joy of their burgeoning love affair through to the unbearable heartbreak at their separation by death, only the stoniest of hearts could fail to be moved by this timeless story – whether you’re watching for the first or the 31st time.
This is a visually stunning, contemporary new production from sought-after Australian director Benedict Andrews, whose work was most recently seen in London with the Young Vic’s award-winning 2014 production of A Streetcar Named Desire.
Puccini’s soaring vocal lines and beautiful orchestration will be conducted by Italian repertoire specialist Xian Zhang. Singing Mimì will be the brilliant soprano Corinne Winters, alongside lyric tenor Zach Borichevsky as Rodolfo.
