by Giacomo Puccini
Ah, Puccini. Warm your heart with one of the Italian opera master’s greatest classics
La bohème is the ultimate opera – tragic, beautiful and unforgettable. For many operagoers, Puccini’s romantic drama is what The Nutcracker is to balletomanes. Lovers, grandparents, older children or close colleagues – everyone’s hearts are warmed when the musical narrative of La bohème unfolds.
The drama begins at Christmas-time when the impoverished artist Rodolfo falls in love with the consumptive seamstress Mimi. While the streets outside their icy garret are filled with Yuletide gaiety, the young couple fights an unequal losing battle against Fate.
Ardent love and unbreakable friendship are at stake in La bohème, and it is difficult not to be carried away when Mimi and Rodolfo declare each other their undying love.
Whether you are experiencing La bohème for the first time or whether it is a cherished favourite, you are certain to fall a little in love yourself when director Elisabeth Linton and her cast of skilled young singers take on one of the greatest classics of all time.
Performed in Italian with Danish supertitles.
