La bohème

Mimì and Rodolfo's passion burns with a brilliant flame. But when Mimì falls ill it meets the cold, hard light of day. In a city of lights, can love eclipse Death itself?

26 Nov - 22 Feb 2019

Jonathan Miller’s classic production returns to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the director’s ENO debut.

When Mimì knocks at the door of four impoverished friends, Rodolfo answers and it’s love at first site. Conducted by Alexander Joel, Puccini‘s moving score follows Mimì and Rodolfo’s love unfolding from it’s joyful beginnings to the heartbreak of her death.

Making their ENO debuts are Natalya Romaniw as Mimì and lyric tenor Jonathan Tetelman, singing the role of Rodolfo. With Nadine Benjamin as Musetta, David Soar as Colline and Harewood Artists Bozidar Smiljanic and Matthew Durkan sharing Schaunard, this Bohème promises to be an exceptional musical and theatrical treat.

'One of the best Bohèmes to be heard in London'
