Acclaimed director Richard Jones (Boris Godunov, Il Trittico) directs a new production of Puccini’s La Bohème conducted by Antonio Pappano.
Irresistible in its witty, passionate blend of comedy and tragedy, the opera focusses on the lives of a group of young artists as they eke out an existence on the bohemian fringes of Paris. Jones brings his characteristically acute insight to this much-loved classic.
Puccini’s romantic depiction of bohemian Paris, with memorable music and a love story drawn from everyday life, has captivated audiences around the world, making ‘La Bohème’ one of the best-loved of all operas. First performed in Covent Garden in 1897 and has had more than five hundred performances there since.
