Opera's greatest love story.

 

Join the bohemian revolution in the heart of Paris as groups of artists live life to the fullest, make art, and fall in love. A chance encounter on a winter night changes everything for Mimì and Rodolfo, sending them into a deep, romantic whirlwind that brings audiences opera's most beloved love story—Puccini's La bohème.

The return of this stunning production directed by John Caird tells the classic tale through scenic elements inspired by Marcello's paintings. Featuring some of opera's most famous music, La bohème brings to life the hope, thrill, and heartbreak of true love.
