OPERA DE PARIS: LA BOHÈME 155 mins

2385 OPERA DE PARIS: LA BOHÈME

New Production! Is it because Henri Murger had himself lived this way in his youth? No one better described the half-starved, struggling artists than the writer in his Scènes de la Vie de Bohème: artists ready to burn a manuscript to try to keep warm yet, in an era of triumphant bourgeois materialism, dreaming of another existence.

Taking up these scenes of Bohemian life, Puccini offers us a heart-breaking love story and some of the most beautiful music in the history of opera in the story of the poet Rodolfo (Atalla Ayan) and fragile Mimì (Nicole Car). The staging of this new production has been entrusted to Claus Guth who sets the drama in a future devoid of hope in which love and art become the sole means of transcendence. The brilliant Gustavo Dudamel conducts.

Please note cast change (12/12/17):  the previously billed Sonya Yoncheva was forced to withdraw from this performance due to illness, replaced in the the role of Mimì by rising Australian soprano Nicole Car, fresh from singing this role for Antonio Pappano at Covent Garden's season opening production.Duration: Approx. 2h35 incl. interval.
