Get lost in the magic musical reveries and timeless romance of Puccini's great Italian opera La Boheme during Florida Grand Opera's forthcoming staging. First performed in 1896, the operatic masterpiece quickly became an audience favorite in the world's leading opera houses, and thanks to its instantly memorable score, big-hearted tenderness, and sumptuous melodies, is still a popular mainstay in the modern repertory.
What is the story?
Legendary arias and duets like 'Quando m'en vo' and 'Sono Andanti' punctuate the bittersweet, heart-wrenching tale of a group of free-spirited creatives living in Paris in the early 1800s.
