One of the most-loved operas of all time
Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in association with Irish National Opera are proud to present a very special livestream concert performance of one of the most-loved operas of all time, Puccini’s La bohème.
Following the unforgettable story of two young, bohemian lovers in Paris, this concert performance will star Irish and international star soprano Celine Byrne as Mimi and Lithuanian tenor Merūnas Vitulskis as Rodolfo, conducted by Sergio Alapont. This spectacular event will also feature the 62- piece Irish National Opera Orchestra, as well as the Irish National Opera Chorus and a wonderful children’s choir to add to the magic of the occasion.
Dramatic, touching and highly evocative, we invite you to experience Puccini’s sublime music live from our iconic stage, re-creating a thrilling and unforgettable theatrical experience from the comfort of your home.
