OperaUpClose presents their hugely acclaimed, 2011 Olivier- Award winning, new English version of Puccini’s La Bohème.

Aspiring novelist Rodolfo discovers a harsher reality when he falls for immigrant cleaner Mimi, while his best friend Marcello's tempestuous relationship with his on-off girlfriend Musetta brings humour and fireworks to the stage.

The comic elements of this hugely popular production heighten its tragic ending, with audiences saying this 21st century Bohème affected them like no other. Robin Norton-Hale’s thought-provoking libretto is delivered with vigour and pace and performed by some of the UK’s top singers.

Age guidance: 13+
