Opera in four acts (1896)

Special Presentation! After the extraordinary success of Rossini’s Il barbiere di Siviglia and Verdi’s La Traviata (both presented in cinemas in 2021) comes a new opera-film collaboration between Opera di Roma and Rai Cultura.

Conceived by maestro Michele Mariotti and award-winning auteur Mario Martone, it’s a sumptuous new take on Puccini’s romantic masterpiece, performed inside the vast Scenography Workshops of the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma. This vast and fascinating building, with a beautiful terrace overlooking the Circus Maximus and the Aventine, is normally used by the theatre’s painters, carpenters and costume makers.

There, Martone situates the characters of Bohème - led by Jonathan Tetelman as the poor poet Rodolfo and Federica Lombardo as his mischievous lover Mimi - and tells their story as a film of the ‘French New Wave’. 

Opera di Roma

Taking its current name at the advent of the republic, Rome’s beautiful opera house, Teatro dell’Opera di Roma was first inaugurated in 1880, as Teatro Costanzi. The company hosted the world premiere of Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana and Puccini’s Tosca among others.
