About This Event
Pittsburgh Opera's La Bohème
Set against the backdrop of 1830s Paris, La Bohème
follows four impoverished artists surviving with little more than friendship, passion and their love for their art. When Rodolfo, a poet, and Mimi, a young seamstress, meet, the two are drawn into a tumultuous and passionate affair with a love that can only be broken by death. Emotional and dramatic, it's no wonder Puccini's most celebrated opera has transcended the genre, inspiring both a ballet and the Broadway hit musical RENT. La Bohème
will make you laugh and bring you to tears with its timeless story and captivating music. See Pittsburgh Opera's stellar production at the Benedum Center.
