Read more about the opera Bohème

Cast details taken from the notice in the Aberdeen Press & Journal of 13 April. The reviewer says "La Bohème...is a trump card in Royal Carl Rosa company's suit. The company can put over the comedy - there were many laughs last night - the sentiment and the tragedy. And there is the orchestra, under the exacting and understandig baton of Walter Susskind..."
