Come lose yourself in the glorious music of Puccini's masterpiece of comedy and tragedy, of love and loss, of hope and hopelessness, laughter and tears, and above all, the triumph of the human spirit.
Join us in the revelry to hear opera's most famous arias, lush duets, rowdy crowd scenes, and comical catfights taking place under the streetlights of a Paris coming alive: The City of Lights.
Come sit with us under gently falling snow as we watch a tender love affair unfold before our eyes. Enjoy the delicious jealousy of besotted young lovers who step up to life's challenges with courage and conviction, if with very little money.
Who knew how important an old coat could be or a silly bonnet from a street vendor? Could life itself be worth a pair of earrings?
These are the questions that challenge our young Bohemians, who face the struggle of living with humour and the cruel twists of fate with heartachingly beautiful song.
La Bohème reminds us that the riches worth having are within us, and no matter what the measure of our lives may be, wealth is about the magnitude of the human spirit, and the depth of the all too human soul.
