Puccini at the Opera House

Buxton Opera House is welcoming Ellen Kent Productions back on Sunday, March 11, at 7.30pm, with their sumptuous production of Puccini’s La Boheme.

La Boheme is one of the most romantic operas ever written, a Puccini masterpiece that tells the tragic tale of the doomed, consumptive Mimi and her love for a penniless writer.

This story of Parisian love and loss features such famous arias as Your Tiny hand Is Frozen, They Call Me Mimi and Muzetta’s Waltz.

The set reflects the Bohemian art of the period with visual highlights including a colourful carnival scene with street entertainers, gypsy dancers, a local band and even a brief appearance from Muzetta’s dog.

Back by public demand, this is a sparkling new production directed by Ellen Kent with stunning designs by the renowned Ukrainian designer Nadezhda Shvets.

Featuring the internationally acclaimed Ukrainian National Opera of Kharkiv with handpicked soloists, a highly praised chorus and full orchestra and starring the international sopranos Rosa Lee Thomas and Elena Dee, this is one not to be missed.

Tickets are £20 to £35. Call the box office on 0845 127 2190.
