       "La bohème is the story of four young dreamers, as well as the women they love. Sustained by their art, music and joie de vivre, the friends refuse to acknowledge the precariousness of their existence and the harsh realities of city living that constantly

threaten to disrupt their equilibrium. But life will not be so easily thwarted, and as brutal city life threatens to overwhelm the group, their lives will be changed forever..."

Following the award-winning successes of our 2016 production of La bohème, Opera in a Box is on tour this summer with a revival production of Puccini’s exhilarating opera La bohème. Fully staged at three contrasting venues across the UK, this tour brings together a hugely talented ensemble of musicians, artists, and a first-rate backstage team to tell the heartrending stories of our troubled and naïve characters.


Winner of the award for 'Innovative Production'- La bohème


"All aspects of the music were performed to an extremely high standard and I believe the audience was treated to a first class, innovative interpretation of this well-loved, classic opera by Puccini."
