Can young love survive the winter?
Rodolfo and his friends are free-spirited artists, living in poverty amongst the garrets and cafes of Bohemian Paris. One cold Christmas night, Rodolfo’s neighbour Mimi comes to his door in search of a light. Their passionate love will change his life, but can it survive until spring comes?
Set in the bustling clubs and cafés of early-60s Paris, Phyllida Lloyd’s vibrant and joyous production is back with a new international cast. One of the best-loved of all operas, Puccini’s tale of tragic romance is told through gloriously moving music that perfectly captures both the overwhelming rush of love at first sight, and the utter devastation of love lost.
