In December, Dutch National Opera presents one of the all-time favourite operas: La bohème, in a new co-production with English National Opera.

Giacomo Puccini based his opera on Henri Murger’s bookScènes de la vie de bohème about the lives of young, struggling Parisian artists. In La bohème the composer turned everyday emotions into great art, writing sensitive passages with the legendary climactic aria ‘Che gelida manina’, the moment the lead characters Rodolfo and Mimì discover their love for one another.

The internationally renowned conductor Renato Palumbo makes his Dutch National Opera debut, as do the prominent director Benedict Andrews and, as decor designer, the visual artist Johannes Schütz. Debutes with DNO as well for the two leads: Atalla Ayan (Rodolfo) and Sonya Yoncheva (Mimì). The popular Dutch baritone Thomas Oliemans (Papageno in Die Zauberflöte) returns as the musician Schaunard.
