La Bohème

La Bohème Cast (2014)Inspired by the work of UK-based grafitti artist and political activist Banksy, our Bohème tells Puccini’s much-loved tale of love, loss, and what happens next, through the eyes of modern day street artists. Using video graphics and drawings to bring the scene to life, it’s a Bohème for today, and you won’t want to miss it!

Led by Imagineer Stage Director Vincent van den Elshout, our Bohème brings together Artistic Advisor Ronny Lauwers, Head Scenographer Emilie Lauwers, Lighting Designer Ace McCarron, Digital Designer Jasper Toeli, First Inspicient Bo van Vliet, Costumes by Leentje Kerremans, and Surtitler Johan Wijnants as our artistic team. The musicians bringing Puccini’s score to life are Pianists and Coaches Caroline James and Pablo García-Berlanga and Violinist Dejana Sekulic, alongside our stellar cast with Mauricio Villanueva Espinosa (Rodolfo), An De Ridder (Mimí), Bruno De Canne (Marcello), Yvette Loynaz (Musetta), Alexey Kokhanov (Schaunard), Peter van Lierde (Colline), and Thomas Mürk (Benoit/Alcindoro), led by Caroline James (Piano) and Dejana Sekulic (Violin) as the orchestra.
