On a freezing Christmas Eve, love sparks. Two hands meet in the dark and four 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.
This touching tale is set among the fishnets and fairy lights of 1930s Berlin.
Stellar sopranos Karah Son, Danita Weatherstone and Rebecca Gulinello sing the role of Mimì. Iván Ayón Rivas and Atalla Ayan sing as the poet, Rodolfo. Julie Lea Goodwin and Esther Song sing the iconically blonde Musetta, while Haotian Qi croons as her Marcello. Michelangelo Mazza and Tahu Matheson conduct.
