Why Watch La Boheme
Directed by multiple award-winner Gale Edwards, Puccini’s emotional masterpiece La Boheme is brought to the Sydney Opera House stage. Edwards captures the visceral feeling aptly, and you will feel the music emanate everything from the agony of loss and the euphoria of love equally well. Composed to express feelings that cannot be described by words, La Boheme exposes your soul to music and its limitless capacity to look into the depths of your heart and mind. A prolific cast ensures that an unforgettable night awaits you, as audience favorites such as Julie Lea Goodwin, Luke Gabbedy, and Anna Princeva are joined by Joye El-Khoury and Ivan Magri.
The opera showcases a beautiful story of the love affair in the 19th century, between a poor seamstress, and an equally penniless poet. The spectacular production by Gale Edwards is set in between the magical lights and the fishnets of Berlin in the 1930s. There will be an interval at 9 pm, during which you can enjoy a mesmerizing display of fireworks. Your evening will be made more magical with special tickets to an exclusive Midnight Party. The event will be conducted in the Northern Foyers of the Sydney Opera House. It will include canapes, drinks as well as top-notch entertainment. Moreover, it is an excellent spot to soak in the beauty of the famous fireworks in Sydney.
