What's On - Opera - La bohème

“A five star production” The Fine Times Recorder

BOHEME_300Giacomo Puccini’s La bohème
An Iford Arts Production

Join our mailing list to be one of the first to hear about new shows, tours and events.

From the first delicate moments of her shyly  hesitant entry Mimi’s music and  her story wrings your heartstrings. Against the background of chaotic  student life where young men sew their wild oats, and the vampish Musetta reigns supreme, Parisian life Puccini’s ever youthful characters await the onset of responsibility.  It is impossible to remain untouched by the rich and dreamy  music and the very human love stories of this, his best-loved work.

Witnessed close up at Iford it becomes more affecting than ever… Bring a hanky.  Conducted by Oliver Gooch with  rising young tenor Anthony Flaum as Rudolfo, and Irish Soprano Màire Flavin as Mimi; with Alison Langer as fire-spitting Musetta and Nicholas Lester as her long-suffering lover Marcello.  This new production is translated and directed by Christopher Cowell.

“The exoticism of the surroundings and the extraordinary listening experience fascinate” Helmut Pitsch
