Libretto: Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica

Featuring Royal Opera Chorus and Orchestra of the Royal Opera House

Co-production with Teatro Real, Madrid and Lyric Opera of Chicago

***

Puccini’s opera of young love in 19th-century Paris is packed with beautiful music, sublime acting and vocal work, as well as a magnificent Brutalist-esque stage and spectacular set design by Stewart Laing. Director Richard Jones’s character-led production perfectly captures La Boheme’s mixture of comedy, romance and tragedy. The cast features some of the greatest interpreters of Puccini’s bohemian lovers performing today, as well as former members of The Royal Opera’s Jette Parker Young Artists Programme.

Puccini’s score is one of his most beautiful, with highlights including Rodolfo and Mimì’s introductory arias and love duet in Act I, ebullient music for the chorus and soloists in Act II, and Mimì’s poignant death scene, over which the composer himself wept. La bohème received its world premiere at the Teatro Regio, Turin, on 1 February 1896, and its Covent Garden premiere the following year. It is currently one of the best-loved operas worldwide, and the opera most performed at the Royal Opera House.
