La Boheme- Puccini
Can you live on love alone?
La bohème tells the story of the lives and loves of four struggling artists living in a draughty garret in Paris in the 19th Century. Puccini's best-loved opera charts the love affair of Rodolfo, a writer, and Mimi, his neighbour, as they eke out a living on the breadline. Life is harsh, and they soon find that you need more than passion to survive. Opera doesn't get more romantic than this!
Heritage Opera, the North West's Professional Touring Opera Company (formed 2006) heads back to Haigh Hall on Thursday 1st November, after the massive success of their summer show, The Marriage of Figaro, which visited the historic venue in August this year. Be sure to bring a handkerchief or three, as you're going to need it for the heart-breaking finale of Puccini's master study of love and loss. Performed in 19th Century period costume, accompanied by solo piano, and sung in a new English translation.
The critics raved about Heritage Opera’s Spring and Summer 2012 tours of Rigoletto and The Marriage of Figaro, Gramophone Magazine describing Figaro as “a stellar cast and spot-on direction, this was a Figaro that I’ll remember for a long time to come”
