Swansea City Opera brings their adaptation of ‘La Boheme’ to Theatre Royal Margate on Saturday 28 May and the tour has been receiving high praise.
‘To place La Bohème in 1940s war-torn Paris wonderfully refreshed one of the best known operas of all time with new life and immediacy.’ – Richard Westcott (North Devon Journal)
‘The reflective opening duet between Rodolfo and Marcello and the subsequent quartet with the four friends were sung beautifully and touchingly with great interplay between the characters.
‘The heart wrenching duet brings the first act to a moving end.’ – Jonathon Denny (Keswick Reminder)
‘Rebecca Goulden was always sweet-toned but her soprano also had the kind of depth that the role of Mimi needs, and she was a subtle actress.’ – Stephen Frazer (Opera Scotland)
