On a freezing Christmas Eve, love sparks. 2 hands meet in the dark and 4 friends’ lives change forever.

Experience the romance of the original bohemian love story.

When Mimì meets Rodolfo, it’s love at first touch. They head out to bustling Café Momus, where the feisty Musetta and Marcello rekindle their relationship. But even the deepest love can’t warm a freezing winter. The Bohemians have some growing up to do.

Some emotions are too big for words alone, and for that, we have music. La Bohème exposes your soul to the feelings that only music can express. The music soars with the ecstasy of love, crackles with the pain of jealousy and cries with the agony of loss.

Set among the fishnets and fairy lights of 1930s Berlin, this is the final season of one of our most popular productions.

Stellar soprano, Valeria Sepe, sings the role of Mimì. Kang Wang sings as the poet, Rodolfo. Lorenzo Passerini and Paul Fitzsimon conduct.
