A smash hit for over a century, this profoundly romantic story of four young Parisians who sacrifice everything for art and love is guaranteed to touch your heart. Puccini’s unmatched gift for melody adds remarkable poignancy to the simple joys and heartbreaking sorrows of the idealistic bohemians. Camaraderie, compassion and sincere emotional truths make the very human characters among the most appealing in opera. Their sweeping passions, masterfully conveyed by an iconic score, make La bohème easy to love—and impossible to forget.
