This masterpiece of the standard Italian repertoire has touched the hearts and souls of opera lovers for generations with the combination of Puccini’s gorgeous score and the bittersweet tale of young love in bohemian Paris. Set in Paris’s Latin Quarter, La Bohème follows starving young artists struggling to survive and fulfill their dreams, getting by on passion, friendship, humor, and a lust for life. On a snowy Christmas Eve, Rodolfo, a romantic poet, and Mimi, an ailing seamstress, meet and fall deeply in love, but her languishing health and their abject poverty threaten their happiness. Heartrending sorrow, joyous celebrations, and the power of the creative spirit propel this poignant work to its tragic conclusion, which is brought to our stage by Virginia Opera. Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
