Information

This is a staged production, where the cast will act and sing the highlights of one of the most popular Italian operas of all time.

A moving, funny, romantic, tragic and uplifting tale, La petite bohème is told through glorious music that perfectly captures both the overwhelming rush of love at first sight and the utter devastation of loss. Mimì and Rodolfo are in love and yet their constant fighting and arguing drives them apart. Musetta and Marcello are selfish, charming and proud. Yet all in a moment of tragedy, they discover their better selves…

This short version has no chorus, no orchestra and is ideal for curious first-time opera-goers as well as those who are familiar with and love La bohème in its more traditional format.
