La Bohème

Opera Bohemia presents further performances of Giacomo Puccini’s romantic tragedy La Bohème. The production has already received critical acclaim across Scotland and the company is delighted to to be taking the show back to the Edinburgh Fringe and to yet more venues across Scotland. La bohème is the tale of Mimi, the young seamstress, whose failing health can’t prevent her from falling in love with the charismatic poet, Rodolfo. This energetic and youthful production, accompanied by violin and piano, captures all the emotional highs and lows in Puccini’s romantic score; from playful banter to the rush of first love, to the devastating pain of heartbreak and loss. Sung in Italian with English subtitles, this intimate production promises to be a memorable night for opera lovers and newcomers alike.
