La Bohème - Reimagined

“Bohemia, bounded on the North by need, on the South by poverty, on the East by illusion and on the West by the hospital.” Henri Murger (1849)

"Paris 1968 - a city torn by violent student uprisings; a ruthless and brutal police reaction; demonstrations, strikes, riots, barricades in the street; tear gas and Molotov cocktails. Idealism...rebellion...repression...violence...civil chaos."

It is upon this premise that Puccini's famous opera will come alive once again.  Caught between rustic Bohemia and chaotic Paris, two love affairs go on until the whirlwind circumstances surrounding them bring about great turmoil in their lives.

Inspired by the films of the French New Wave, this unique new production transports one of the world’s greatest love stories to a mythological Paris. 

The performances will take place on the following dates at the Citi Performing Arts Center - Shubert Theater:

Friday, October 2nd at 8pmSunday, October 4th at 3pmWednesday, October 7th at 7:30pmFriday, October 9th at 7:30pmSunday, October 11th at 3:00pm
