An innovative new production of Puccini's masterpiece.

For the first time in India, the NCPA and the SOI present a new take on Giacomo Puccini's beloved opera La Bohème. Puccini's lush score is interspersed with texts from Murger's original novel which inspired the opera, to tell the tale of the lives and loves of young artists in the Bohemian quarter of Paris. Featuring an international star cast, the performances will be led by renowned conductor Carlo Rizzi-who also conducts La Boheme at the Metropolitan Opera, New York, this season-and SOI Associate Music Director Zane Dalal.

Carlo Rizzi ranks among today's leading conductors. Equally at home in opera and the concert hall, his vast repertoire spans everything from the foundation works of the operatic and symphonic canon to rarities by Bellini, Cimarosa and Donizetti. He is in high demand as a guest artist at the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals, not least for the insight and integrity of his musicianship and the visceral energy and psychological depths of his interpretations. Future engagements include return visits to Teatro alla Scala, Milan; Welsh National Opera; Metropolitan Opera, New York; Opera de Paris and Dutch National Opera.

In Italian with English subtitles.
