Opera Australia - La Boheme

La Boheme

Presented by Opera Australia

On a freezing Christmas Eve, love sparks. Two hands meet in the dark and four friends' lives change forever.

Experience the romance of the original bohemian love story.

When Mimì meets Rodolfo, it's love at first touch.
They head out to bustling Café Momus, where the feisty Musetta and Marcello rekindle their relationship. But even the deepest love can't warm a freezing winter. The Bohemians have some growing up to do.

Some emotions are too big for words alone, and for that, we have music.
La Bohème exposes your soul to the feelings that only music can express. The music soars with the ecstasy of love, crackles with the pain of jealousy and cries with the agony of loss.

This touching tale is set among the fishnets and fairy lights of 1930s Berlin.

Stellar sopranos Karah Son, Danita Weatherstone and Rebecca Gulinello sing the role of Mimì.
Iván Ayón Rivas and Atalla Ayan sing as the poet, Rodolfo. Julie Lea Goodwin and Esther Song sing the iconically blonde Musetta, while Haotian Qi croons as her Marcello. Michelangelo Mazza and Tahu Matheson conduct.

Sung in Italian with English surtitles.

La Bohème is an opera that tells the story of a group of young artists living in the bohemian quarters of Paris in the 1800s. The opera follows the love story of the poet Rodolfo and the seamstress Mimi, and their struggles to survive the harsh realities of poverty and illness. The opera is considered as one of the most popular and enduring operas of all time, and it's known for its powerful storytelling, beautiful music, and memorable arias. The singing is excellent, particularly from the lead actors playing the roles of Rodolfo and Mimi. The sets and costumes are well-designed, and they help to create an immersive and authentic atmosphere of 19th century Paris. The performance is well-executed and engaging, with elements of drama, romance, and tragedy. The themes of love, friendship and sacrifice make it a deeply moving and emotional opera that will leave a lasting impression on the audience. Overall, La Bohème is a must-see opera for anyone who wants to experience the beauty and power of the classics and will be appreciated by fans of classical music and theater.
