Royal Opera House

Puccini's passionate opera is conducted by Antonio Pappano and stars a superb young cast including Nicole Car, Michael Fabiano and Mariusz Kwiecien, in a new production by Richard Jones.

When Rodolfo, a penniless poet, meets Mimì, a seamstress, they fall instantly in love. But their happiness is threatened when Rodolfo learns that Mimì is gravely ill. Acclaimed director Richard Jones (Boris Godunov) directs a new production of Puccini's La bohème. Irresistible in its witty, passionate blend of comedy and tragedy, the opera focusses on the lives of a group of young artists as they eke out an existence on the bohemian fringes of Paris.

Puccini's romantic depiction of bohemian Paris, with memorable music and a love story drawn from everyday life, has captivated audiences around the world, making La bohème one of the best-loved of all operas.

Singing for Pleasure Choir

The Singing for Pleasure Choir love singing (as the name suggests!) and love performing their concerts at Kirton in Lindsey Town Hall. The audience also seem to like joining in so this is an opportunity to come along and sing just for the fun of it. You don't have to be able to read music or sing in a formal way, it's much more about making noise and enjoying exercising those lungs! Wherever you sing now - the shower, the football stadium, the car; this is an opportunity do it with others in a friendly, informal setting with no pressure to perform.

Singing is supposed to release endorphins (the body's natural feel-good hormones) and help with hearing problems too so come along and give it a try.

Entrance FREE with refreshments and bar available. If you want more information, contact Jenny Cripps on 07902 010898 or just come along on the night.

Scunthorpe Gilbert and Sullivan Society
Directed by Roberta Morrell

Gilbert and Sullivan's bright and breezy musical comedy, full of topsy-turvy humour and rousing tunes. Will the Captain's daughter get to marry her sailor boy, or be forced into an alliance with the Ruler of the Queen's Nay-vee? There's fun for all as the plot unravels in this fully-staged production. Come along and enjoy the fun.
