This opera's in English.
No squinting to read the surtitles & no missing the jokes because you don’t speak French. The comic elements of this hugely popular production heighten its tragic ending, with audiences saying this 21st century Bohème affected them like no other, thanks to its stark relevance to modern day issues. Robin Norton-Hale has created a truly thought-provoking libretto and directs the piece with vigour and pace.
Puccini's Bohème is the world's most-loved opera weepie with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments too. As one of the most accessible and moving operas ever written, it's a perfect introduction to the artform. We focus on the storytelling in our productions without ever compromising on the musical standards so both seasoned opera-goers and complete newbies will enjoy.
It's cheap as chips (or as cheap as a night out!).
We make sure our tickets remain affordable for everyone by downsizing the opera but not the quality. Our singers have performed at the Royal Opera House and ENO, here you're seeing them for a fraction of the price.
You don't need us telling you it's amazing when our audiences and press do such a good job of it! This is the production that beat Royal Opera House & ENO to an Olivier Award, so whether you're an opera-buff or a complete newbie, it will knock your socks off!
