RENT is an emotional story of hope, compassion and inclusiveness and is the first ever production of the original English version in Switzerland.

This Tony Award-winning rock opera is based on Puccini’s La Bohème and concerns a group of young artists and musicians struggling to survive and be creative in New York's Lower East Side against the background of their destructive bohemian lifestyles.

It features a number of well-loved songs such as Seasons of Love and La Vie Bohème.

The show is being performed at the Scala Basel and the performance dates are:

Thursday 16 June at 7:30pm
Friday 17 June at 7:30pm
Saturday 18 June at 2:00pm and at 7:30pm
Sunday 19 June at 7:30pm

You can get tickets online here:

Should be an excellent show, as I was lucky enough to hear the auditions.

Have fun
Martin

Re: RENT - Award Winning Rock Opera

Hi,

I'm fairly new to Zurich and looking for a way to meet new people (that I don't work with... )

Would anyone be interested in getting a group together to go on Thursday evening? Maybe with a drink/bite to eat afterwards?

Niamh
