Join Outreach Opera on 3 September 2021 on the grounds of Astley Hall for one of the most famous and unforgettable operas of all time.
Acting as the perfect introduction to opera, La Boheme follows a group of struggling friends, as they encounter the many highs and lows that life has to offer.
Rodolfo, a penniless poet and hopeless romantic, opens the door one fateful night, to an apologetic Mimi, who is looking for a light for her candle, and the pair instantly fall in love. But, with the cruel reality of life and all it has to offer lurking just around the corner, their journey is a hard one.
A tale of friendship, warmth, love and heartbreak, this opera certainly packs a punch. This event will take place in Astley Park's Walled Garden, with an extended interval during which you are invited to bring along a picnic to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings on the lawn.
