Puccini's enchanting love story is one of the most popular ever written – and this is your chance to hear the great work, sung in English.

Mimì and Rodolfo's passion burns with a brilliant flame. But when Mimì falls ill, their love meets the cold, hard light of day. In a city of lights, can love eclipse Death itself?

Conducted by Alexander Joel, Puccini‘s moving opera follows Mimì and Rodolfo’s love unfolding from its joyful beginnings to a heart-breaking finale.

Jonathan Miller’s classic production of La bohème returns to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the director’s debut with English National Opera.

The stellar cast includes Natalya Romaniw as Mimì and lyric tenor Jonathan Tetelman as Rodolfo, making their ENO debuts, as well as Nadine Benjamin who sings the role of Musetta.

This production of Puccini’s masterpiece promises to be an exceptional musical and theatrical treat. And you can catch it at the London Coliseum between 26 November – 8 December, and 29 January – 22 February 2019. Find out more and book tickets here.
