La bohème at English National Opera

During November and December ten boys from the Vaughan (alongside nine girls also chosen and trained by the Vaughan Music Department) sang in Puccini's La bohème at English National Opera

This was a revival of Jonathan Miller's acclaimed production, staged jointly with Cincinnati Opera - boys from our friends in the Cincinnati Boy Choir had sung in it when it was staged there. It was the second time that the Vaughan had provided the children for the production, having done so in 2013 as well.

The opera received excellent reviews including:

'One of the best Bohèmes to be heard in London in recent years… immensely moving' ★★★★★ The Guardian

This video gives a sense of this beautiful production, inspired by photos of the 1930s Left Bank.
