La Boheme on Sydney Harbour

Date: 16 Mar 2018

Puccini’s opera takes you to a wintry Christmas Eve in Paris where, in the snow-kissed city of light, six friends taste love, laughter and the first pangs of loss.

Andy Morton directs two brilliant casts in a new production that places Mimi and Rodolfo’s romantic awakening against the political awakening of Paris during the student uprising of the late 1960s. Designer Dan Potra creates the magic of those volatile French streets on stage.

“It’s a show about being young, and falling in love, and living without a thought for tomorrow,” says Morton. “That resonates with everyone. That’s why it’s so immediate.”
