Opera's Greatest love story
Puccini's tantalizing tale of young artists, musicians, poets, and performers living on the edge of society continues to captivate as it reaches the 125th anniversary of its creation. Aided by a lush and memorable score, John Caird's exquisite production takes us on a journey back in time and into the lives, loves, hopes and dreams of history's most beloved Bohemians.
Amongst a lively but destitute collective of artists, philosophers, and musicians, poet Rodolfo is entreated by Mimi, his beautiful and delicate neighbor to help her light her last candle. Losing his heart immediately he and Mimi embark on a dizzying relationship that captures the whole scope of Bohemian life, from raucous parties at various watering holes to spirited fights with their landlord. La Boheme is truly the ultimate paean to love, life and art.
