Welsh National Opera: La bohème

25 + 27 September, 5 + 6 October 2022

Donald Gordon Theatre

Better to have loved and lost than never loved at all.

One cold Christmas Eve, four penniless artists – a painter, a musician, a poet and a philosopher – have their lives changed forever when they are unexpectedly visited by their neighbour Mimì, looking for candlelight. Rodolfo opens the door to be hit with a love at first sight that burns brighter than a flame.

Months later, their youthful passion is challenged by the harsh realities of life when Mimì becomes gravely ill. Rodolfo and his friends try their best to look after her but can his love prevent tragedy? 

La bohème is a tale of love, loss, rebellion and freedom and is one of opera’s most adored stories. WNO’s timeless production paints a vivid portrait of bohemian life in Paris at the turn of the 19th century, enhanced with atmospheric projections and Puccini’s gloriously romantic music. It’s guaranteed to touch your heart and make you fall in love with Rodolfo, Mimì and their friends time and time again.
