Paris, 1900. Penniless writer Rodolfo believes that art is all he needs – until he meets Mimì, the lonely seamstress who lives upstairs. So begins a timeless love story that blooms, fades, and rekindles with the passing seasons. But while the couple’s friends Marcello and Musetta passionately row and make up, a force greater than love threatens Rodolfo and Mimì.
Richard Jones’s production evokes the vivid contrasts of fin de siècle Paris, from Bohemian apartments to glittering arcades.
Directed by Richard Jones, conducted by Kevin John Edusei, and sung by Ailyn Pérez (Mimì), Juan Diego Flórez (Rodolfo), Andrey Zhilikhovsky (Marcello), Danielle de Niese (Musetta), Ross Ramgobin (Schaunard), Michael Mofidian (Colline).
