La Boheme Greek National Opera

LA BOHEME at the Greek National Opera

Where: Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center (SNFCC)
When: 7 Dec 2017 – 5 Jan 2018
Why Go: See this classic opera set in modern day Athens

In 2007, renowned British opera director Graham Vick created a version of La Bohème for the Greek National Opera that was set in modern day Athens, transporting Puccini’s beloved opera from 19th century Paris to 21st century Exarchia.

The faces of the four ambitious young artists and their camaraderie are known to all. Their problems, concerns, jokes and observations remain ever so poignant.

Vick returns for this operatic revival, seeking out bohemian friends in today’s Athens, to bring a renewed spirit to the production of La Boheme ten years on, following its original debut at the Olympia Theatre.

Internationally acclaimed Greek soprano Myrtò Papatanasiu makes her debut in the title role. This production forms part of a tribute to former GNO opera director and set designer Stefanos Lazaridis.
