Rent is a multi-award winning rock musical based on Puccini's opera La Bohème, but transported to the vibrant streets of New York City.
Rent takes place in the early 1990s following a year in the life of Mimi, Mark, Roger, Angel and their bohemian friends as they face the excitement and angst of the approaching millennium.
The roller coaster of emotions is accompanied by a thrilling musical score including the hit numbers Seasons of Love, Without You and La Vie Bohème as we journey through the adventures, loves and losses of our city dwellers as they struggle to find love, friendship and of course pay the rent!
Rent is a powerful and dynamic musical reaching a stunningly raw and thrilling conclusion. It ran for an incredible 12 years on Broadway.
Following on from our hugely successful production of West Side Story, Rent once again features a young and talented cast supported by the professional expertise of Buxton Opera House including a thrilling band. It will be directed by Buxton Opera House CEO Paul Kerryson.
