A Fantastic Bohemian

A Fantastic Bohemian

Arcola Theatre · 04 AUG - 12 AUG

Part Of Grimeborn Opera Festival

Overview

A Fantastic Bohemian is a unique, immersive opera experience, performed across three spaces at Arcola Theatre.

Step into Salón MIO, inspired by Mexico’s most emblematic “Salón Los Ángeles”, where vice, love, death and passion all mingle throughout one epic evening. And join the great bohemian artist Hoffmann, on a journey to uncover the mysteries of his three lost loves…

Based on Jacques Offenbach‘s ‘opéra fantastique’ The Tales of Hoffman, this new English-language production transports you to Mexico City in the Golden Cinema Age of the 1940s, mixing Offenbach’s music with traditional ‘Danzón’.

Founded by London-based Mexican artistic director and producer María Inés Olmedo, Opera MIO pushes the boundaries of the opera experience, breaking down established physical and conceptual walls and introducing contemporary theatre practices to the art form.

Live music (piano, cello, clarinet, violin), performed in English with Spanish.
