Soprano Ermonela Jaho is soon to return to Covent Garden, singing the role of Mimì in John Copley's Royal Opera production of La bohème.

'Mimi is a simple girl and every woman can recognize themselves in her,' says Ermonela of her character. 'She falls in love with Rodolfo and sees the world of a poet, with its energy and without limits, and she's captivated.'

'She's a woman that loves totally and chases after love until the end, even when she knows that she's dying.'

'It's such a human story - everybody has loved, sacrificed, laughed and lost. La bohème touches our souls.'

La bohème runs from 9-19 July 2014. Tickets are still available.
The production is staged with generous philanthropic support from The Royal Opera House Endowment Fund.
