About La bohème About Barefoot Opera Book

Fully staged, sung in Italian with English surtitles, Barefoot Opera bring their unique brand of energized, physical ensemble playing to one of the world’s most loved operas.  In Puccini’s La Boheme youth, joie de vivre and passion struggle against the hard, dark city, and Barefoot Opera’s cast are touchingly young stars of the future just emerging from the London colleges. Our signature quartet/ensemble is led by Lesley Anne Sammons with direction by Jenny Miller.

Don’t miss this fresh and musically vibrant take on a great classic.
