Dalston. East London. 2017.

Ralph clocks Mimi and it’s love at first sight. As their passionate affair heats up, romance turns to addiction, setting the couple on collision course with disaster. Will true love conquer all.

In the first of the ‘King’s Head Theatre in the West End Season’, you were shown a radically different take on Puccini’s timeless classic La Bohème, in a brand new version by Adam Spreadbury-Maher and Becca Marriott. There was laughter, tears and sublime music in an opera experience you’ll never forget!

A limited season ran from the 6 December 2017 through to 6 January 2018 at the Trafalgar Studios, Studio 2.
