La boheme by Giacomo Puccini Play poster

Theatre: An Audio Described performance of La bohème at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre

26 Nov 2023, 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm (Past)

Bord Gáis Energy Theatre, Grand Canal Square, Docklands, Dublin, Ireland

An Audio Described performance of La bohème will take place on Sunday 26 November at 5:00pm for blind and visually impaired patrons.

Those availing of the service will be given a handheld device with headphones upon their arrival. A trained Audio Describer will deliver a live verbal commentary describing the performance, enabling users to know exactly what’s happening onstage throughout.

A touch tour is also available ahead of the performance on Sunday at 3:30pm. This will allow visually impaired audience members to familiarise themselves with the design of the opera, and the costumes and props ahead of the performance.

La bohème written by Giacomo Puccini  is the Paris of love and art. A poet, a painter, a musician and a philosopher. Living hand to mouth in a freezing garret. Christmas cheer and a heart won by the girl next door. The tragedies of love and poverty.

Puccini’s best-loved opera is touching, comic, realistic and romantic, true for any time in which deep bonds can flower in the face of adversity.

To book an audio description or touch tour slot, please get in touch with Bord Gáis Energy Theatre Groups office at groups@bgetheatre.ie or +353 (0) 1 677 7770 where further details of both services can be provided.
