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. Running time: 2hrs 15mins. Classic revival


Gwyn Hughes Jones (Rodolfo), Kate Valentine (Mimi), Richard Burkhard (Marcello), Angel Blue (Musetta), Andrew Craig Brown (Colline), Duncan Rock (Schaunard), Simon Butteris (Benoit and Alcindoro)
