THE GARDYNE Theatre will provide the backdrop for Puccini’s classic romantic tragedy later this month.

The Opera Bohemia company will bring their critically acclaimed production of Giacomo Puccini’s ‘La Bohème’ to Broughty Ferry on Thursday, September 27, at 7.30 p.m.

Formed in 2010 by Alistair Digges and Douglas Nairne, Opera Bohemia aim to make opera more accessible by stripping the orchestra down to just a piano and solo violin and concentrating on shorter, more intimate productions of well known operas.

‘La Bohème’ will be sung in the original Italian, but with English subtitles, and tells a story of doomed love between a sickly seamstress and a charismatic poet.

Rising Scottish star Catriona Clark will play the role of seamstress Mimi and Arbroath-born bass Ross McInroy will make his debut in the role of Colline.

Tickets are £12 and £10 concession, and are available from the box office on 01382 434940 or by visiting www.dundeebox.co.uk.
