On Christmas Eve in Paris, Roldofo, a young, starving poet, falls in love with Mimi, a beautiful, young seamstress…and opera has never been the same.  Puccini’s La Bohème is, without a doubt, one of the most popular operas ever written.  With its thrilling, beautiful music and its mixture of high comedy and serious drama, the opera sweeps the viewer away into a world of young love, a world of romance, and ultimately, a world tinged with bittersweet longing.  With La Bohème, Puccini wonderfully captures just what it means to be young and alive, offering us a brilliant mixture of lightness or darkness, all set to some of the most romantic music ever written.


Sung in Italian with easy-to-read projected English supertitles.
