Presented by Swansea City Opera
It’s Christmas Eve in Paris. A young poet, an artist and a philosopher are celebrating in their flat. Then comes a knock at the door, a lost key and an accidental touch of cold hands in the dark, and so begins one of the greatest romances of all opera. From the irrepressible joy of their burgeoning love affair through to the unbearable heartbreak at their separation by death, only the stoniest of hearts could fail to be moved by this timeless story – whether you’re watching for the first or the 31st time.
We are delighted to welcome back the critically acclaimed Swansea City Opera, who are setting their production of La bohème in war torn1940’s Paris. Sung in English and accompanied by chamber orchestra, don’t miss this opportunity to hear Puccini’s shimmering concoction of soaring vocal lines and lush orchestral melodies.
There will be a pre-performance talk about the opera and production at 6.00pm, given by the Artistic Director of Swansea City Opera, Brendan Wheatley
A beautiful production, & my favourite opera. wonderfully supported by Suffolks very own, Rabble Chorus choir
Beautiful. The orchestra slightly overpowering if you happened to be seated on tha left but it didn't spoil it. Wonderfully moving
