ROH Opera – La Boheme (12A)

ROH Opera – La Boheme (12A)

Puccini’s opera of young love in 19th-century Paris is packed with beautiful music, including lyrical arias, celebratory choruses for Act II’s evocation of Christmas Eve in the Latin Quarter and a poignant final scene over which the composer himself wept.                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Richard Jones’s character-led production perfectly captures La Boheme’s mixture of comedy, romance and tragedy, with striking designs by Stewart Laing.                                                                                                                                                                                      The cast features some of the greatest interpreters of Puccini’s bohemian lovers performing today,  Sonya Yoncheva, Charles Castronovo, Andrzaj Filoriczj and Aida Garifullina, as well as former members of the Royal Opera’s Jette Parker Young Artists’ Programme.    (2hr 30min)
