Barefoot Opera presents La Boheme
Barefoot Opera’s captivating new production, La Bohème, gets right to the heart of the romance and tragedy of one of the world’s most popular loves stories.
‘I am particularly pleased to present La Bohème with the Barefoot Opera spirit… that is, with a very young cast and a very ‘gypsy’ band, to allow this opera, so often predictably staid and performed by stars in their forties, a sense of real youthfulness.’ (Jenny Miller, Director)
Director Jenny Miller is determined to bring a fresh, youthful dimension to this often-staged opera. With an international cast of outstanding young professionals, and Barefoot Opera’s fresh, energetic ensemble style, this production promises to inspire and delight. Designer Jane Bruce, continuing her expressive, painterly collaboration with Barefoot Opera, brings a further youthful edge to Puccini’s imagined Paris.
Whether you’re a La Bohème devotee, or a complete novice to opera, this should be a production like no other!
