A lost key and an accidental touch of cold hands in the dark; so begins one of the great romances of all opera. Puccini’s glorious masterpiece of youth, passionate love and heartbreak springs to life in this exciting new production by Jacqueline Coats.
La bohème features the return of some of the most brilliant young New Zealand singers on the international stage - Thomas Atkins, Marlena Devoe, Julien Van Mellaerts, and Amelia Berry - along with Australians Timothy Newton and Nicholas Lester. Tobias Ringborg, who was last in New Zealand for Tosca in 2015, returns to conduct another of Puccini’s great operas.
Whether it’s your first time or your fiftieth, La bohème will remind you what it means to be alive and in love, set in the beautiful snow covered Paris.
