Social takeover: La Bohème

By Robin Johnson, Published December 20, 2017

It’s Puccini and opera like you’ve never seen it before, as the King Head Theatre’s unique adaptation of La Bohème has arrived on the West End stage – so to celebrate, the cast took over our Instagram story.

And with stage make-up tutorials, backstage tours, a fabulous “brace” pun, and some sneak peeks at the critically acclaimed show as seen from the wings, it’s well worth reliving through the video below.

Adam Spreadbury-Maher and Becca Marriott’s reinterpretation of Puccini’s La Bohème is set in present-day East London, and delves into the lives and loves of Mimi, Musetta, Ralph and Mark. The production lays bare the damaging effects of co-dependent relationships against a backdrop of spiralling rents and social media.
