Puccini

  • Select a time to view seat availability

The world’s most popular opera returns with an exciting young cast in Franco Zeffirelli’s legendary production. Poverty-stricken poet Rodolfo and his artist friends eke out a precarious existence in bohemian Paris, alternately practising their art, laughing, quarrelling, dodging the landlord, and living it up in their local cafe. When Rodolfo meets the delicate Mimì, the pair instantly fall in love. But Mimì is ill, Rodolfo is jealous, and their romance is doomed from the start.

Opera superstars Sonya Yoncheva and Michael Fabiano play the heart-breaking couple, singing two sublime Puccini favourites - Sì, mi chiamano Mimì and Che gelida manina. Susanna Phillips reprises the role of the flirtatious Musetta and Lucas Meachem sings the role of her lover, the painter Marcello. The cast also features Alexey Lavrov and Matthew Rose as Schaunard and Colline, and Paul Plishka as Benoit/Alcindoro in this performance, led by Marco Armiliato. Zeffirelli’s stupendous onstage recreations of 19th-century Paris are sure to take your breath away.
