Seven years after the last performance of La bohème at the Greek National Opera in Athens, Giacomo Puccini’s timeless, much-loved masterpiece is making its return in an iconic production directed by the late British opera director, Graham Vick.
In 2007, 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.
This operatic revival returns, seeking out bohemian friends in today’s Athens, to bring a renewed spirit to the production of La Boheme.
This production forms part of a tribute to Graham Vick, the great opera director who chose to pluck La bohème from 19th-century Paris and place it in 21st-century Athens, creating a landmark production for the Greek opera scene in the process.
Revival director: Katerina Petsatodi
