La Boheme (Royal Opera)

CTC , 155 mins

When Rodolfo, a penniless poet, meets Mim, a seamstress, they fall instantly in love. But their happiness is threatened when Rodolfo learns that Mim is gravely ill. Acclaimed director Richard Jones (Boris Godunov, Il trittico) directs a new production of Puccini's La bohŠme. 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, the capital of the 19th century. Jones brings his characteristically acute insight to this muchloved classic, visualized in Stewart Laing's spectacular, stylized 1850s setting. 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 boheme one of the best-loved of all operas. It was first performed in Covent Garden in 1897 and has had more than five hundred performances there since.
