Flash Briefings

La Bohème - The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden 

Richard Jones’s recent production for The Royal Opera perfectly captures the vulnerability of youth amid the harshness and glamour of a big city. When Rodolfo, a penniless poet and Mimì, a seamstress, meet they fall instantly in love. But their happiness is threatened when Rodolfo learns that Mimì is gravely ill. Rodolfo is painfully aware that he cannot afford the medicine and care Mimì needs, and so separates from her leaving her to find a man willing to pay for her, and her medicine. As her sickness takes hold they are joyfully reunited – but, despite the care of Rodolfo and his friends, Mimì dies.
