Popular conductor Guy Noble directs an ensemble of musicians from the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in Richard Gill’s chamber orchestration of La bohème.
La bohème Performed by Opera Queensland, this most romantic opera of all time, La bohème appeals to devotees and newcomers alike. Mimì’s love affair with the poet Rodolfo begins on a snowy Christmas Eve in Paris on the cusp of 1914, a year that changes the world forever. Award winning theatre director and former Rockhampton resident Craig Ilott (Smoke & Mirrors) and designer Penny Challen have chosen that last optimistic winter – exactly one hundred years ago - as an electric moment to set Puccini’s beloved story of bohemian life. This intimate and revealing new production stars some of Queensland’s most exciting young singers as a group of rent-dodging flatmates living and loving precariously on the edge of society. Sung in Italian with projected English translations. Featuring a chorus of local performers.
Presented by Rockhampton Regional Council and Opera Queensland.
