Recorded live this summer at the world-leading opera house in the heart of the Sussex countryside, Floris Visser directs an exciting young cast in Glyndebourne’s first new La bohème for over 20 years.
In La bohème Puccini elevates ordinary people to the level of the extraordinary, the tragic, the timeless – transformed by a score that has seduced generations of audiences. Fresh from Festival 2022, Glyndebourne’s new five-star production is ‘a masterpiece in monochrome’ (The Arts Desk). With a ‘megawatt Mimì’, director Floris Visser delivers a ‘fresh take’ on one of the greatest operas of all time (The Times).
When seamstress Mimì meets the struggling writer Rodolfo they are instantly drawn together. But Paris is a city of hardship as well as love, as the two young Bohemians and their friends soon discover. Conversational and familiar, atmospheric and emotionally amplified, La bohème paints the complexity of human relationships in all their many shades, framing them with wonderfully vivid, bustling scenes of Parisian life. Comedy and tragedy are woven tightly together in an irresistible flow of melody and drama.
