Royal Opera House: La Boheme 12A Certificate

Running Time: 170mins

Several of opera's greatest stars turn out for this historic final revival of John Copley's staging of Puccini's romantic masterpiece. A quartet of bohemians share an uncomfortable garret in 1830s Paris. On Christmas Eve, poet Rodolfo (Joseph Calleja) is finishing some work when neighbour Mimi (Anna Netrebko) comes to ask for a light for her candle. It's love at first sight, but the couple's happiness is to be short-lived. Ever since its opening night back in 1974, John Copley's definitive production of Puccini's much-loved romantic opera has been one of The Royal Opera's best loved stagings. It's rich in period and dramatic detail, with Julia Trevelyan Oman's beautiful designs brilliantly evoking the atmosphere of 19th century Paris. Now this magnificent version of the world's favourite opera can be seen for the very last time. Among those returning to bid farewell are Anna Netrebko as Mimi and Joseph Calleja as Rodolfo, under Israeli conductor Dan Ettinger.
