Opera House, Manchester

Sung in Italian with English surtitles

Renowned opera producer Ellen Kent returns this month with one of the most romantic operas ever written – Puccini’s La Boheme.

La Boheme will be traditionally staged featuring beautiful sets and costumes. The set reflects the Bohemian art of the period and will include a brass band, snow effects and Musetta’s dog will also make an entrance.

This classic tale of Parisian love and loss features many famous arias including ‘Your Tiny Hand is Frozen’, ‘They Call Me Mimi’ and ‘Musetta’s Waltz’.

Puccini’s masterpiece, which is based on Henri Murger’s novel Scenes de la vie de Boheme, is set in Paris and is the tragic tale of hopeless romance between the doomed, consumptive Mimi and penniless writer Rodolfo.

After falling in love instantly, Rodolfo later leaves Mimi due to her flirtatious behaviour, and although briefly reunited after Rodolfo is wrecked by guilt, the tale comes to a tragic conclusion.

The French soprano Olga Perrier together with the international soprano Ecaterina Danu are returning to star in this production as Muzetta and Mimi respectively.

The international tenors Giorgio Meladze and Vitalii Liskovetskiy are also returning after their previous huge success in the UK.

The Spanish Tenor Giorgio Meladze, has acquired critical acclaim in Europe, singing in Milan, Spain and across Europe. He also sang in Austria together with Jose Carreras in 2014. Giorgio will be singing the part of Rodolfo.

Ellen Kent Opera returns again in May 2017 with La Boheme, Nabucco and Aida.
