The King’s Head Theatre: La Boheme

SEEN, ever a fan of London’s thriving Fringe Theatre, is delighted to see that the King’s Head Theatre is presenting a radical new version of Puccini’s timeless classic, La Bohème, by Adam Spreadbury-Maher and Becca Marriott.

SEEN, ever a fan of London’s thriving Fringe Theatre, is delighted to see that the King’s Head Theatre is presenting a radical new version of Puccini’s timeless classic, La Bohème, by Adam Spreadbury-Maher and Becca Marriott.

It will be the second brand-new opera production staged by the theatre this year. Renowned for his inventive, contemporary reinterpretations of classic theatre and opera, Adam Spreadbury-Maher will focus upon the quintessential quartet, Mimi, Musetta, Rodolfo (Ralph) and Marcello (Mark), but will lift the opera from Puccini’s early 19th century setting, to present-day East London.

The production will lay bare the dangerous and damaging effects of co-dependent relationships against a modern and all-too-topical backdrop of spiralling rents and social media.
