La Bohème one of the timeless favourites of the opera canon returns to the Royal Opera House.
This classic production brings to life Paris of the 1830s – from the bare student garret to a bustling street, from a packed café to a snowy dawn on the edge of the city where a tragic truth is finally revealed.
John Copley's production sees the tragic young lovers, Mimi and Rodolfo, shared by two sets of opera stars, Anja Harteros with Joseph Calleja and Angela Gheorghiu with Roberto Alagna.
Sung in Italian with English surtitles.
