The team behind 2014’s hit Don Pasquale returns with a new production of Puccini’s classic, La bohème. Director Renaud Doucet and designer André Barbe set the romance amidst the jumble of Paris’s famous flea markets. Inspired by the Jazz Age of Josephine Baker, this production will be full of their trademark colour, character and style.

"It’s a pleasure to discover La bohème for the first time or to see it for the twentieth time – proof that, as an opera, it is universal, and that its atmosphere is more than merely nostalgic" Renaud Doucet & André Barbe

Puccini’s sublime score never fails to cast its spell – his lush orchestration and exquisite vocal lines combine in some of the most ravishing music in opera. Hye-Youn Lee (Madama Butterfly 2014) is the fated Mimì and Luis Gomes, winner of 2015’s Grand Prize at the Verbier Festival Academy and a Covent Garden regular, is Rodolfo. Music Director Stuart Stratford conducts.
