ENO's production of La Boheme is a triumph,
The furnaces were roaring
With a foul and sulphurous smell
The damned were being tortured -
Just another day in Hell.
The air was full of ghastly screams
And soul-destroying moans
When above the dreadful clamour
Rose some shrill suburban tones...
A cherry-pick some of the best on offer in the weeks to come
