Jonathan Miller’s classic production returns to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the director’s ENO debut.
When Mimì knocks at the door of four impoverished friends, Rodolfo answers and it’s love at first sight. Conducted by Alexander Joel, Puccini‘s moving score follows Mimì and Rodolfo’s love unfolding from it’s joyful beginnings to the heartbreak of her death.
Making their ENO debuts are Natalya Romaniw as Mimì and lyric tenor Jonathan Tetelman, singing the role of Rodolfo. With Nadine Benjamin as Musetta, David Soar as Colline and Harewood Artists Bozidar Smiljanic and Matthew Durkan sharing Schaunard, this Bohème promises to be an exceptional musical and theatrical treat.

I have heard and seen many productions of La Bohemè - this is the best so far.

Beautiful arias but hard to believe in struggling young artists living in a garret - they all looked remarkably well-fed!
