Covent Garden, London, WC2E 9DD
Seating chart & directions
La Boheme, Puccini's timeless favourite, is a touching story of young love. A lost key and an accidental touch of cold hands in the dark... so begins one of the great romances of all opera. John Copley's production brings 19th-century Paris to the stage in vivid detail. With a cast of internationally acclaimed singers, La Boheme features beautiful melody and rich orchestral colour.
The classic production brings to life Paris of the 1830s, from the bare student garret to a bustling street, from a packed cafe to a snowy dawn on the edge of the city where a tragic truth is finally revealed. It is a lively staging and a potent musical drama, whether with the full forces of the Royal Opera Chorus in the merry bustle of Act II , or the Orchestra of the Royal Opera House evoking the changing atmospheres and shifting passions of Act III.
Under conductors Semyon Bychkov and Maurizio Benini, the combination of Puccini's great music and intense passion from opera stars will once more show why this great work is so popular, famous and eternally touching.
