La Boheme at Broadway Cinema & Theatre
13th March 2019
OperaUpClose come to Broadway Theatre with their hugely acclaimed, 2011 Olivier-Award winning, new English version of Puccini’s La Bohème. One of the most accessible and moving operas ever written, La Bohème charts the ups and downs of a group of idealistic graduates as they bicker, party, try to make ends meet and follow their dreams. Aspiring novelist Rodolfo discovers a harsher reality when he falls for immigrant cleaner Mimi, while his best friend Marcello’s tempestuous relationship with his on-off girlfriend Musetta brings humour and fireworks to the stage. The comic elements of this hugely popular production heighten its tragic ending, with audiences saying this 21st-century Bohème affected them like no other. Robin Norton-Hale’s thought-provoking libretto is delivered with vigour and pace and performed by some of the UK’s top singers.
