Arguably one of the most beloved operas, La Bohème tells the story of starving poet Rodolfo and his doomed love Mimi in the Latin Quarter of Paris in the 1840s. The tale of passionate yet hopeless love has become part of the standard Italian repertory, and one of the world’s most recognized operas.
La Bohème will take the stage, January 16-18, at the Kravis Center.
Tickets cost $25-$195.
Composed by Giacomo Puccini and libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica, the opera is based on Henri Murger’s novel Scénes de la vie de bohème. The fast-paced opera, with its relatively small cast, gives this classic work oversized and universal appeal, with each role and each movement given a flair for the dramatic.
