Puccinis opera of young love in 19th-century Paris is packed with beautiful music, including lyrical arias, celebratory choruses for Act IIs evocation of Christmas Eve in the Latin Quarter and a poignant final scene over which the composer himself wept. Richard Joness character-led production perfectly captures La bohmes mixture of comedy, romance and tragedy, with striking designs by Stewart Laing. The cast features some of the greatest interpreters of Puccinis bohemian lovers performing today, as well as former members of The Royal Operas Jette Parker Young Artists Programme.This is a LIVE cinema relay on Wednesday 29 January 2020 at 7.45pm.Sung in Italian with English subtitlesApproximate running time: about 2 hours 30 minutesMusic Giacomo PucciniLibrettoGiuseppe Giacosa and Luigi IllicaConductor Emmanuel VillaumeDirector Richard JonesDesigner Stewart LaingLighting designer Mimi Jordan SherinMimSonya YonchevaRodolfo Charles CastronovoMarcello Andrzej FiloczykMusettaAida GarifullinaSchaunard Gyula NagyColline Peter KellnerMovement director Sarah FahieRoyal Opera ChorusOrchestra of the Royal Opera House
