OPERA lovers will have the chance to enjoy a spectacular showing of La Boheme on Tuesday – in the centre of town.

As well as the action on stage, the screen in Wharf Green will bring exclusive backstage films, competitions and the best performances live to Swindon.

Opera buffs and first-timers alike can enjoy the world class production in true alfresco style, offering a free, cultured evening.

The tragic love story will begin at 7.30pm with presenters Kirsty Wark and Dominic Peckham.

It features a star-studded cast, including the renowned Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu and Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo.

Bring a picnic and chair and join in this culture evening in Swindon town centre.

Seating is limited and is given on a first come first served basis, so people are advised to bring their own.
