Gianandrea Noseda talks about La bohème

La bohème is one of the most popular operas ever, probably because it tells a story of youth.

The magnificent new production of La bohème coming to the International Festival this year is brought by Teatro Regio Torino – the opera house that gave Puccini’s masterpiece its very first staging, back in 1896.

Gianandrea Noseda, conductor and Music Director of Teatro Regio Torino, talks about the moment when he had an opportunity to examine the original manuscript of La bohème: “It’s fascinating because you see the way he wrote the music very quickly: there are a lot of ideas sketched out and that is the score.” Watch the video below to find out more.

La bohème will be performed at the 2017 International Festival on 25-27 August at the Festival Theatre, and you can book your tickets now.
