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. Sung in Italian with English surtitles.Performers Jessica Rose Cambio (Mimi - some dates), Alyson Cambridge (Mimi - some dates), Danielle Pastin (Mimi - some dates), Sean Pannikar (Rodolfo - some dates), Rame Lahaj (Rodolfo - some dates), James Edwards (Rodolfo - some dates), Anna Leese (Musetta - some dates), Zulima Lopez Hernandez (Musetta - some dates), Michael Chioldi (Marcello - some dates), Zhengzhong Zhou (Marcello - some dates), Stefano de Peppo (Schaunard), Joshua Bloom (Colline), Henry Waddingham (Benoit/Alcindoro), Paul Hopwood (Parpignol), Mark Saberton (Customs Officer), Oliver Gibbs (Sergeant).
