Giacomo Puccini

ENO Drive & Live

Live opera returns with Puccini’s La bohème in a unique drive-in experience.

Park up at our drive-in theatre and find yourself immersed in the modern day bohemia of London. When the struggling writer Rodolfo meets his neighbour Mimì, it’s love at first sight. But as the youthful couple and their friends indulge in life’s pleasures, their happiness is quickly dashed by the realities of their precarious living situation.

This new production of Puccini’s tragic romance is performed live – both on stage and on the ground – so you’ll find yourself at the heart of the action.

Featuring members of the award-winning ENO Orchestra and Chorus, we have two incredible casts of principal singers alternating throughout the run. The raised stage has large screens relaying the performance, and we will be using microphones for high quality stereo sound both outside and inside your car, so you can hear Puccini’s beautiful score.

If you don’t have a car you can book an Uber Box – a static car that adheres to social distancing – or come on a bicycle.

For more FAQs about our drive-in, read our ‘What to Expect’ guide before booking your tickets.
