Libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa
La Bohème tells a bittersweet tale of young love and loss set among the vibrant artists of the Latin Quarter of Paris. The passionate music and powerful drama of Giacomo Puccini’s masterpiece focus on the tender yet ill-fated attraction between Rodolfo, a poet, who resides in a cold-water garret with his rambunctious friends, and Mimì, a seamstress who lives down the hall. Surrounded by the cheery hustle of the artists’ quarter, their passion burns brightly for all too short a time. Please join Opera Lyra for a very romantic and entertaining evening.
