OperaUpClose's version of La Boheme is to transfer to London's Charing Cross Theatre from October 30th.
Following the success of pub opera company OperaUpClose's production of Puccini's La Boheme in London's Cock Tavern and the Soho Theatre, it will now transfer to the Charing Cross Theatre for a three-month run from October 30th.
The production won the 2011 Olivier Award for Best New Opera Production and 2011 Whatsonstage.com award for Best Off-West End Production. The new version at Charing Cross will be directed by Robin Norton-Hale, with musical direction from Elspeth Wilkes.
It will be the second production in only the second season for the new theatre. Director Robin Norton-Hale has also produced an English-language version of the original Italian libretto.
Previous OperaUpClose productions have taken place at various locations across London, including The Cock Tavern and The King's Head Theatre Pub in Islington. Operas staged include Don Giovanni, The Barber Of Seville (Or Salisbury) and The Coronation of Poppea.
