NZ Opera – La Boheme

October 11, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm NZDT


A lost key and an accidental touch of cold hands in the dark; so begins one of the great romances of all opera. Puccini’s glorious masterpiece of youth, passionate love and heartbreak springs to life in this exciting production by Jacqueline Coats. The world of the bohemians in this new production is a stylised one with the feel of snow-clad 1890s Paris, but not tied to one era. Period silhouettes mix with contemporary materials in a wintery setting for a story that remains timeless – how the world changes around the youths as they experience the highs and lows of being in love.

La bohème features the return of some of the most brilliant young New Zealand singers on the international stage – Thomas Atkins, Marlena Devoe, Julien Van Mellaerts, and Amelia Berry – along with Australians Timothy Newton and Nicholas Lester. Tobias Ringborg, who was last in New Zealand for Tosca in 2015, returns to conduct another of Puccini’s great operas.

Whether it’s your first time or your fiftieth, La bohème will remind you what it means to be alive and in love.

Because this is a new production the running time is not yet confirmed but it has an estimate running time of 2 hours and 20 minutes.
