Synopsis


A Fantastic Bohemian is a unique, immersive opera experience, performed across three spaces at Arcola Theatre.


Step into Salón MIO, inspired by Mexico's most emblematic "Salón Los √°ngeles", where vice, love, death and passion all mingle throughout one epic evening.


And join the great bohemian artist Hoffmann, on a journey to uncover the mysteries of his three lost loves …


Based on Jacques Offenbach's 'opéra fantastique' The Tales of Hoffman, this new English-language production transports you to Mexico City in the Golden Cinema Age of the 1940s, mixing Offenbach's music with traditional 'Danzón'.
