La Bohème at the London Coliseum
London Coliseum, St. Martin's Lane, London, WC2N 4ES
Experience love, heartbreak and timeless romance in Benedict Andrews’s production of La Bohème at the London Coliseum with ENO.
A brilliant new interpretation of one of opera’s most popular and unforgettable stories. This is a visually stunning, contemporary new production from sought-after Australian director Benedict Andrews, whose work was most recently seen in London with the Young Vic’s award-winning 2014 production of A Streetcar Named Desire.
Puccini’s La Boheme will be conducted by Italian repertoire specialist Xian Zhang with the brilliant soprano Corinne Winters singing Mimi alongside lyric tenor Zach Borichevsky as Rodolfo.
La Bohème will play a limited season from 16 October 2015 until 26 November 2015 at the London Coliseum
The moment Mimì knocks on the door of her neighbour Rodolfo sparks the start of a journey which will take the couple – and you – through the full range of human emotions.
From the irrepressible joy of their burgeoning love affair through to the unbearable heartbreak at their separation by death, only the stoniest of hearts could fail to be moved by this timeless story – whether you’re watching for the first or the 31st time.
The cast includes Corinne Winters, Zach Borichevsky, Duncan Rock, Rhian Lois, Nicholas Masters, Ashley Riches and Simon Butteriss
Conducted by Xian Zhang, directed by Benedict Andrews, with set design by Johannes Schütz, costume design by Victoria Behry, lighting design by Jon Clark, movement by Ran Arthur Braun and translation by Amanda Holden. This is a co-production with Dutch National Opera, Amsterdam
