Award-winning Nevill Holt Opera makes its debut at the sensationally beautiful Lincoln Cathedral with a concert performance of Puccini’s heartbreaking La bohème

NHO’s Artistic Director Nicholas Chalmers conducts Manchester Camerata (“Britain’s most adventurous orchestra” – The Times) and a cast of principals comprising the UK’s most talented up-and-coming opera singers alongside established professionals. 

Puccini’s glorious music scores one of opera’s greatest and most tragic love stories. When the beautiful seamstress Mimì knocks on the door of the penniless poet Rodolfo their passionate connection is instant, but their happiness is threatened by a tragic discovery. 

The role of Mimì will be performed by Nigerian-American soprano Francesca Chiejina, a graduate of the Royal Opera House’s Jette Parker Young Artists Programme; Peter Scott Drackley (Sweeney Todd, Des Moines Metro Opera; Tosca, Anchorage Opera) takes the role of Rodolfo; Alexandra Oomens, a Harewood Artist with English National Opera, is Musetta; Frank Spedding Leider Prize-winning Christopher Nairne is Marcello; Jette Parker Young Artist Dominic Sedgwick is Schaunard; Colline is played by Dingle Yandell (Akhnaten, ENO; The Magic Flute, Scottish Opera), who returns after performing at NHO in 2021; and Andrew Tipple (Silverlake, ETO; Le nozze de Figaro, NHO; Death in Venice, Garsington) will perform as Benoit/Alcindoro. 

 La bohème will be sung in Italian.
