THE Royal Opera House’s stunning production of La Bohème is to be screened live at Cardigan’s Theatr Mwldan on Wednesday, January 29 (7.45pm).

Puccini’s opera of young love in 19th-century Paris is packed with beautiful music, including lyrical arias, celebratory choruses for Act II’s evocation of Christmas Eve in the Latin Quarter and a poignant final scene over which the composer himself wept.

Richard Jones’s character-led production perfectly captures La Bohème’s mixture of comedy, romance and tragedy, with striking designs by Stewart Laing.

The cast features some of the greatest interpreters of Puccini’s bohemian lovers performing today, as well as former members of The Royal Opera’s Jette Parker Young Artists Programme.

Tickets are priced at £16 (£15) and are available now from Theatr Mwldan’s box office on 01239 621 200, on-line at or via the Mwldan app.

“Singing and acting that truly tugs at the heartstrings,” writes The Times, while Londonist adds: “Richard Jones's bold, bright and witty La Bohème brings added warmth and humour to this well-loved tale of doomed love.”
