This new version will focus on the quintessential quartet - Mimi, Musetta, Rodolfo (Ralph) and Marcello (Mark), and it will be lifted from when Puccini set his opera in the early 19th century to present day East London. The production will lay bare the dangerous and damaging effects of co-dependent relationships against a backdrop of spiralling rents and social media.
