Premiere of ‘La Bohème’ by Puccini from La Fura in Rome

120 years after its premiere, La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini lands in Italy reinvented by La Fura dels Baus. It was mark the opening shot of the 2016-2017 opera season of the Teatro Regio Torino. This june the opera directed by  Àlex Ollé with he orchestra direction by Giandrea Noseda, returns to Italy: it will be at the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma from June 13 to 24.

Bohemians, masking their misery under a certain beauty and living hunger with a touch of irony. In the nineteenth century and now. The city as a space of survival. The myth of the Latin Quarter over a hundred years ago evolves in this mise en scène to the inaccessible crowded city of today portrayed by Michael Wolf. Present-day neighbourhoods where marginal characters and exploited workers coexist with a new generation of artists; an amalgam of cultures and origins.

This Bohème returns to the essence of Puccini that makes this piece attractive to all audiences, because it is a tribute to lost youth. Every spectator will feel its joyful and untroubled vitality and the inevitable realisation of maturity. The opera will premiere next Wednesday June 13th, but a total of 11 functions will be performed until 24th. Tickets can be purchased through the oficial website of the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma.
