Closing OPERA SA's Fourth Season

May 17 & 19, 2018

Puccini's La bohème

LA BOHÈME – Sung in Italian with English supertitles

When a shy stranger knocks on the door of a penniless poet, looking for someone to light her candle, they both find that something more magical is kindled.

Thus begins one of the most beloved and tragic operas ever written, which continues to move audiences to tears with its tale of the doomed love between the poet Rodolfo and the seamstress Mimi. The tale is set against the backdrop of life in the Latin Quarter of Paris, with the lively and engaging characters of Musetta, Marcello and all the bohemians brought to life by the beautiful music of Puccini.  The joy of living is counterbalanced with the struggles to keep body and soul together, and passion fights with the need to be understood. Dreams clash with reality, and in the end, life and death share the stage in a poignant portrayal of too little too late.

With unforgettable characters and some of the most cherished music in the repertoire, Puccini's La Bohème holds a unique place in the hearts of opera lovers. For those new to opera, it is the ideal "first piece," and for devoted opera fans, there is still much to discover from our favorite Bohemians of the opera stage.
