A classic tale retold for 21st century London. A tale of love and tragedy, indulgence and excess. Having wowed audiences at Kilburn's Cock Tavern in a record-breaking, sell-out six-month run, Soho Theatre takes on opera for the very first time as Puccini's La Boheme is retold for contemporary Soho with a talented, classically trained young cast.
