Opera on Location, in association with Museums Sheffield
All performances of La Boheme are now SOLD OUT
Rodolfo, a highly educated poet from a wealthy family has found himself disinherited, disenfranchised and squatting in a once grand stately home, now slowly crumbling around him. Desperately striving to maintain the pretence of a chosen bohemian lifestyle, along with his companions, Schaunard, Marcello and Colline, their drug addled days merge from one into another. However, upon a chance encounter with the mysterious and beautiful woman of the night; Mimi, Rodolfo’s life is changed forever. A brief, hedonistic affair ends in sorrow and tragedy. There seems to be no room in their world of hallucinations, sex and poverty for love and beauty.
Exploring contrasting locations within Graves Gallery, you will feel as if you are not just watching but are a part of this tragic love story. This unique setting of Puccini’s seminal work gives you the chance to be sat in the four young mens’ bedroom, move with them to streets of the city, feel the joys and highs of new and rekindled love and the bitter sorrow of heartbreak.
This performance will be sung in English.
