Taliesin Broadcast - ROH: La bohème (As Live 12A)


ROH: La bohème (As Live 12A)

Music Giacomo Puccini

Director Richard Jones

Royal Opera Chorus

Orchestra of the Royal Opera House

Puccini’s opera of young love in 19th-century Paris is packed with beautiful music, including lyrical arias, celebratory choruses for Act II’s evocation of Christmas Eve in the Latin Quarter and a poignant final scene over which the composer himself wept. Richard Jones’s character-led production perfectly captures La bohème’s mixture of comedy, romance and tragedy, with striking designs by Stewart Laing. The cast features some of the greatest interpreters of Puccini’s bohemian lovers performing today, as well as former members of The Royal Opera’s Jette Parker Young Artists Programme.

Approximate running time: about 2 hours 30 minutes

Co-production with Teatro Real, Madrid and Lyric Opera of Chicago
