La Bohème Warhola
Re-imagine the antics and love affairs of four ‘Bohemian’ artists, set not in a nineteenth-century Parisian garret, but instead in the revolutionary artsy world of 1960s New York.
Maybe even imagine it set in The Factory, the tin foil-covered loft where Andrew Warhola became Andy Warhol, the father of pop art as well as an artistic symbol of a new era.
Our production is inspired by Andy and created by an innovative New York-based team. They will transform Puccini’s fabulous opera, in a radical, intimate, modern metamorphosis… but Puccini’s heart will still beat as strongly and his music sing as truly and unmistakably as ever.
