The director Claus Guth sets the broken love affair of Rodolfo and Mimi in space, creating a universe in which the past resurges in the form of hallucinatory flashbacks. Book your tickets to this innovative production of Puccini's La Bohème.
Puccini's setting of Henri Murger's Scènes de la vie de bohème offers us one of the operatic repertoire's finest jewels. The work alternates between lightness of touch and passages of tender, melancholy lyricism, which are etched in our collective memory. The orchestra, expressive and colourful, evokes a Paris that is both legendary and very real. Michele Mariotti directs Ailyn Perez as Mimi and Joshua Guerrero as Rodolfo, in a production by Claus Guth building around the theme of memory as a tenuous link to life.
