La bohème, Puccini's story of young love in bohemian
Paris is one of the best-loved of all operas. Annabel Arden's
sensitive production uses evocative projections which take you to
Parisian rooftop garrets, snowy streets and Christmas celebrations
at Café Momus. Breathtaking sets and costumes by Olivier Award
Winning designer Stephen Brimson Lewis (Dirty Dancing,
Acorn Antiques) will transport you to a vibrant Paris
peopled by vivid, lovable characters.
La bohème was performed this summer to critical acclaim, with The Telegraph hailing it as "***** a sparkling triumph".
Mozart's Così fan tutte is a comedy beside the seaside. The story tells of Guglielmo and Ferrando, who test their sweethearts' fidelity, and whose relationships soon become very complicated indeed.
Jephtha is a masterpiece of music theatre, set in this production in war-ravaged 1940s Europe. The magnitude of the love and sacrifice of a father and his daughter is brought to life by Katie Mitchell's intense and powerful staging.
