Teeming with period detail, John Copley’s definitive production of La Bohème is traditional opera at it best.

From a shabby garret to the bustling Café Momus to a snowy courtyard at dawn, this minutely observed panorama of 1830s Parisian life, beautifully designed by Julia Trevelyan Oman, conjures emotions and atmosphere ranging from joy to tragedy, in large-scale crowd scenes and intimate tableaux. Opera star Rolando Villazón, alongside Maija Kovalevska Stefania Dovhan, and Audun Iversen, bring top-tier vocal artistry to this production from the Royal Opera House in London.

Performed January 10, 2013.
