Virginia Opera: La Bohème

  • October 16, 2009 at 8:00 pm

Concert Hall

This bittersweet romantic tragedy is among the most popular works in the operatic literature. Set in the Latin Quarter in Paris at Christmastime, this melodic masterpiece tells the tale of starving young artists living lives of quiet desperation tempered by love, a lust for life—and of course—friendship and good humor. Poet Rodolfo and beautiful seamstress Mimi briefly find love together, but Mimi’s languishing health and their abject poverty threatens their happiness. This is a story of poignant love, heartbreaking tragedy, and the uplifting creative spirit, illuminated by Puccini’s dramatic score. Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
