La bohème

Giacomo Puccini
Royal Opera House
Directed by John Copley

A lost key and an accidental touch of cold hands in the dark – so begins one of the great romances of all opera.

When Rodolfo, a penniless poet, meets Mimì, a seamstress, they fall passionately in love. But their happiness is threatened when Rodolfo learns that Mimì is gravely ill in John Copley's striking production.

Sung in Italian, with English subtitles.
