La bohème is the perennially popular opera about a charming group of young Bohemians who navigate the ups and downs of life and love while struggling to make ends meet in 19th-century Paris. Puccini’s sublimely melodic score is both heartwarming and heartbreaking.
WHY HAVE AUDIENCES BEEN FALLING IN LOVE WITH LA BOHÈME FOR MORE THAN 100 YEARS?
Because, in the most captivating music Puccini ever composed, he shows us exactly what love is about. Mimì and Rodolfo are young lovers we all understand, and when they suffer, our hearts break for them. Their romance ultimately leads to tragedy, but along the way are treasured moments of pure ecstasy. We get to know this endearing pair and their Bohemian friends, and we totally connect with their feelings. La bohème remains forever youthful, eternally fresh.
