Giacomo Puccini’s opera ‘La Bohème’ will be performed at Croatian National Theatre, Zagreb on December 17, 2016, at 6 p.m. with a re-run on December 21, 2016 at 7:30 p.m.
The conductor is Nikša Bareza and the stage director is Arnaud Bernard.
Despite an unsuccessful opening night Puccini’s fourth opera La Bohème has become one of the most popular Italian operas. Each and every production that followed the opening night both in Italy and abroad won great acclaim with the critics and the audiences. The music and the soul-stirring plot that had been taken from life earned this opera the epithet of one of the most loved and popular operas in general. The libretto was created after Henri Murger’s novel Scènes de la Vie de Bohème in which he described the life of students and artists of the Parisian Latin district. After less than five years, the moving love story of a fragile seamstress and a charming poet returns to our stage. La Bohème directed by the Frenchman Arnaud Bernard is an excellently staged performance. (Jutarnji list, December 21, 2009.)
The duration of the performance is 2 hours and 45 minutes with 2 intervals.
