In the shadows of the newly-built Eiffel Tower and Moulin Rouge, the Parisian bohemian community flourishes.

Following on from last year’s stunning production of Verdi’s Rigoletto, Opera Loki is delighted to be returning to Upstairs at the Gatehouse in Highgate Village after an extended tour of France and the UK in 2015.
Part of a growing trend of bringing popular opera to trendy venues, the cast includes an impressive collection of British singing talent. Opera Loki is a small charity that aims to support singers early in their careers and brings opera in English to regional communities.

La Boheme is directed by Laura Attridge, musically directed by Harry Sever and produced by Jane Gray.
