Opera: La Boheme

When? 14 September 2019
Where? Dorchester

  • Opera: La Boheme

Opera Holloway are delighted to be performing Puccini’s La Boheme, a thrilling and passionate love story, as depicted by one of Opera’s true legends.

La Boheme depicts the ever-changing fortunes of the lives of four flatmates, reluctant to leave their student days behind them. Conducted by Lewis Gaston and directed by Fiona Williams, we follow the unfolding love story of Mimi and Rudolfo from its joyous beginnings to the bitter end. Opera Holloway’s production moves the action to a seaside town, on the south coast of England. Four young men are living the youthful dream, yearning for love and not working too hard. Their flat is run down and they’re content to live on take-aways. They complain when they run out of money and have perfected the art of dodging the landlord. Their lives are filled with trips to the pub, late night dancing and girls.

Until Mimi knocks on the door. Rodolfo opens it, eyes and hands meet and a passionate affair begins. We follow the impoverished lovers as their relationship unfurls on the chilly promenade.

This contemporary new production of Puccini’s classic tear-jerker, captures the raw, consuming power of young love performed in Opera Holloway’s trademark intimate and immediate style.

Venue: The Corn Exchange
