DORCHESTER favourites Opera Holloway return on Saturday, September 14 at 7pm with Puccini’s La Boheme, a thrilling and passionate love story, as depicted by one of opera's true legends.

This classic opera will be performed at Dorchester Corn Exchange.

La Boheme depicts the ever-changing fortunes of the lives of four flatmates, reluctant to leave their student days behind them.

Opera Holloway’s production moves the action to a seaside town, on the south coast of England. Four young men are living the youthful dream, yearning for love and not working too hard. Until Mimi knocks on the door…

Conducted by Lewis Gaston and directed by Fiona Williams, we follow the unfolding love story of Mimi and Rudolfo from its joyous beginnings to the bitter end.

Dorchester Arts Artistic Director Mark Tattersall said: “Opera Holloway always deliver outstanding performances from rising stars. It’s great to be able to offer high quality live opera outside of the big cities. Whether an opera aficionado or complete newbie, you will be swept away by this romantic tale.”

This contemporary new production of Puccini's classic tear-jerker, captures the raw, consuming power of young love performed in Opera Holloway's trademark intimate and immediate style.

*Opera Holloway's La Boheme will also be performed at Stalbridge Village Hall on Sunday, September 15. Tickets cost £20, include a glass of Prosecco, and are available via the Artsreach website.
