Welsh National Opera
La bohème
Giacomo Puccini

Wed 31 Oct - Sat 3 November 2012

Wed, Fri & Sat 7.15pm

Joyous love blossoms and perishes in the winter snow.

Love at first sight: Mimi and Rudolfo meet on Christmas Eve, and instantly fall in love. Their happiness is short lived. Mimi’s health deteriorates and to make matters worse she must deal with Rodolfo’s growing jealousy. Their friends, Musetta and Marcello rekindle their love for each other.

However, they too quickly realise that they can’t live with or without each other. By spring both couples will have to come to terms with the fact that love cannot conquer all.

If you have experienced La bohème before, this major new production by Annabel Arden, set in the elegance of Edwardian Paris, will allow you to see this great opera with new eyes. If this is your first La bohème, this is the perfect opportunity to experience one of the greatest love stories ever sung.
