La Bohème

Better to Have Loved and Lost

Young and poor and consumed with love, six Bohemians lead “charming and terrible lives” in 19th-century Paris. Living in Latin Quarter garrets, furnished mostly with hope for the future. Strolling medieval streets crowded with toy vendors, fruit sellers, street urchins and military bands. They fraternize with famous writers and artists at the Café Momus and find their places in a rapidly changing society. They taste the freedom and perils of a freelance economy, and brave epidemics of passion and jealousy, sorrow, and loss.

Conductor Jader Bignamini and director Mary Birnbaum bring Puccini’s boisterous, poignant, heartbreaking score to life onstage.

See it with someone you love.
