Opera in four acts (1896)
Puccini's opera of passion, friendship and heartbreak features a star-studded cast, stylishly conducted by Kevin John Edusei. Paris, 1900. Penniless writer Rodolfo (Juan Diego Flórez) believes that art is all he needs – until he meets Mimì (thrilling soprano Ailyn Pérez), the lonely seamstress who lives upstairs. So begins a timeless love story that blooms, fades, and rekindles with the passing seasons. But while the couple’s friends Marcello (Andrey Zhilikhovsky) and Musetta (Australian-born soprano Danielle de Niese) passionately row and make up, a force greater than love threatens Rodolfo and Mimì. Richard Jones’s production evokes the vivid contrasts of fin de siècle Paris, from Bohemian apartments to glittering arcades.
