English Touring Opera returns to Norwich with a poetic production of the most popular of operas.
Puccini’s La bohème is a story of young love, starting on Christmas Eve in a Parisian garret. On this festive, snowy night the lovers draw close, but poverty forces them apart. Their story is told in the most memorable music, from ‘Che gelida manina’ to the shattering brass chords announcing Mimi’s death.
ETO’s much-praised production, in period dress and inventive designs, sung in Italian, promises to break every heart and breathe joy into the spirit of everyone who has ever wanted love.
