CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Puccini's most enduring opera. The story of the love of the poor poet Rodolfo for the consumptive seamstress Mimi. Set in the Latin Quarter of Paris the course of their love is constantly threatened by Rodolfo's jealousy and Mimi's illness. The painter Marcello and the provocative Musetta are the other main characters. This is where 'your tiny hand is frozen' comes from and the last few bars, as Rodolfo realises Mimi is dead, are some of opera's most moving moments. Possibly the world's first drive-in opera. This new, modern 90 minute version of the much-loved La bohÃ¨me is performed live with members of the award-winning ENO Orchestra and Chorus. Two incredible casts of principal singers alternate throughout the run, including Natalya Romaniw and SinÃ©ad Campbell-Wallace sharing the role of MimÃ¬, alongside David Butt-Philip and David Junghoon Kim as Rodolfo. The performers will be on a raised and covered stage, with large screens to the side also relaying the performance so that all audience members get a great view. If you don't have a car you can book an Uber Box, or come on a bicycle. websitePerformers Natalya Romaniw (Mimi - Sep 19/23/25/27), Sinead Campbell-Wallace (Mimi - Sep 20/22/24/26), David Butt Philip (Rodolfo - Sep 19/23/25/27), David Junghoon Kim (Rodolfo - Sep 20/22/24/26), Roderick William (Marcello - Sep 19/23/25/27), Matthew Durkan (Marcello - Sep 20/22/24/26), Nardus Williams (Musetta - Sep 19/23/25/27), Soraya Mafi (Musetta - Sep 20/22/24/26), William Thomas (Colline - Sep 19/23/25/27), Jonathan Lemalu (Colline - Sep 20/22/24/26), Benson Wilson (Schaunard - Sep 19/23/25/27), Ross Ramgobin (Schaunard - Sep 20/22/24/26).
