This resetting of Puccini's opera in London's E1 in 2016 delves into the lives and loves of Mimi, Musetta, Ralph and Mark, laying bare the damaging effects of co-dependent relationships against a backdrop of spiralling rents and social media

The King's Head's 2016 'opera for the hipster generation' gets a West End transfer with a new cast.

“The singing, up close, is thrilling - visceral and elemental - but never less than controlled... you don't want to miss this one”

Gary Naylor (Broadway World)

“Pared-down Puccini that’s as dramatically taut as it is musically satisfying... Plenty of fun... A slick new English libretto. ”

The Stage (Other reviewers)

“Rough and uncomfortably close-range, with some awkward word stresses... Captures the sardonic tone. ”

Other newspaper reviewers

“Up to the interval there is much light-hearted comedy, which makes Mimi’s decline in the second half all the more affecting.”

Clare Colvin (Express)

“Striking updating... In this bijou performing space the experience is visceral... The passion... is unusually believable.”
