Beautifully sung… English Touring Opera’s new take on Puccini’s classic features starkly atmospheric sets and terrific singing.

4 STARS, Guardian

A dream Bohème… If you live too far from a city to profit from the major producing houses, be assured: this touring version is as good as it gets. It’s off the scale of good.

4 STARS, WhatsOnStage

Enough to make you shed a tear

4 STARS, The Times

Worth catching for the wonderful singing and conducting alone.

Sunday Times

The two leads are excellent: David Butt Philip imbues his bashful Rodolfo with clarion tone and a generous warmth of phrase, while Ilona Domnich is an absolutely enchanting Mimi.

Daily Telegraph

Paris, 1840. On a snowy Christmas Eve, a starry-eyed poet meets a poor dress-maker over candlelight, and instantly falls in love. At first the good times roll. But will their happiness last, or does the bohemian lifestyle come at a price?

ETO’s new period production draws inspiration from 19th century Paris and features some of the most exciting lyric singers in Britain today, including Ilona Domnich as Mimì and David Butt Philip as Rodolfo – a role he sang for ENO to wide acclaim.

With some of the most memorable music in opera, a night at La bohème will lift every spirit and break every heart.

New production, sung in Italian with English surtitles
Running time: 2 hours 15 minutes (incl. interval)
Age guidance: Suitable for all ages

Your Comments

  1. Just watched La Boheme at Hall for Truro tonight. What a delight. Wonderful singers. Bit undecided on the stark stage settings but thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Thank you.

    Said Penny Jones at 22:58pm on 17th Mar 2015

  2. I just have to write to say what a wonderful 3 days I had in Cheltenham - seeing all three operas. The singing was superb. It was the second time I had seen Calais - and it didn't let me down! The Wild Man was well performed - especially the performance of Peter Brathwaite whose singing and acting were faultless. When it came to Boheme, my handky was soaked!! But often it is just the beauty of the music: however, this time I would say I have never seen the final scene so beautifully and convincingly acted and sung. So, from a very enthusiastic supporter, all praise and congratulations.

    Said Francesca at 11:14am on 13th Apr 2015

  3. Just home from a beautifully sung and played Boheme at Warwick University Arts Centre. We look forward with anticipation to the Autumn programme!Congratulations to all concerned.

    Said JEAN PRATT at 22:40pm on 24th Apr 2015

  4. Most enjoyable exuberant performance with stunning singing/acting, conducting, and accompaniment enhanced by the intimacy of the small Grand Theatre in Blackpool.

    Said R. Sanner at 18:36pm on 12th May 2015

  5. Stupendous performance at Cambridge Arts Theatre. Beautifully sung and wonderfully accompanied by the orchestra. They let Puccini flow, gave the music time and let emotion take over. Act 3 set - the BEST ever

    Said Lucian Hatfield at 23:14pm on 29th May 2015

  6. Went to first ever opera - La Boheme Cambridge Arts Theatre 29 May. What an introduction to live opera!! Awsome production, superb voices, excellent acting. Had my wife in tears - I just managed to hold back! What next in the opera journey?
