One cold Christmas Eve, four penniless artists – a painter, a musician, a poet and a philosopher – have their lives changed forever when they are unexpectedly visited by their neighbour Mimì, looking for candlelight. Rodolfo opens the door to be hit with a love at first sight that burns brighter than a flame.

Production shot

Months later, their youthful passion is challenged by the harsh realities of life when Mimì becomes gravely ill. Rodolfo and his friends try their best to look after her but can his love prevent tragedy?

La bohème is a tale of love, loss, rebellion and freedom and is one of opera’s most adored stories. WNO’s timeless production paints a vivid portrait of bohemian life in Paris at the turn of the 19th century, enhanced with atmospheric projections and Puccini’s gloriously romantic music. It’s guaranteed to touch your heart and make you fall in love with Rodolfo, Mimì and their friends time and time again.

Sung in Italian, with surtitles in Welsh and English

There has been a theatre on George Street for almost 185 years. The first theatre was built in 1836, and a second in 1886. In 1908, the Dorrill family took over the venue and finally in 1934, the third Theatre opened; the ‘New Theatre’. Stanley Dorrill masterminded the rebuilding of the theatre as we know it today. He commissioned a new building from the well-known theatre architects William and T.R. Milburn of Sunderland. The Milburns developed the decadent art-deco interior with T.P Bennett and Sons, who also designed the Saville Theatre in London.
