Opera On Location presents: La Boheme
Tuesday 20 September 2016
8pm - 11pm
The Spiegeltent, Barker's Pool, Sheffield
Welcome Opera on Location to the special setting of the Spiegeltent at Night for a performance of Puccini’s classic opera, La Bohème
Our hero Rodolfo and friends Schaunard, Marcello and Colline are desperately striving to maintain the pretence of a chosen bohemian lifestyle, their drug-addled days merging from one into another. However, a brief, hedonistic affair between our hero and the beautiful and mysterious Mimi ends in sorrow and tragedy. There seems to be no room in their world of hallucinations, sex and poverty for love and beauty.
Performed in the intimate setting of the highly decorative Spiegeltent, you will feel as if you are not just watching but are a part of this tragic love story. This unique setting for Puccini’s seminal work gives you the chance to be sat in the four young mens’ bedroom, move with them to streets of the city, feel the joys and highs of new and rekindled love and the bitter sorrow of heartbreak.
