In an opera performance that covers everything from the joys of love to its most bitter consequences, La Boheme has become one of the most loved compositions of all time. Join the singers on their spellbinding journey through poverty, love, and the little joys of life.

Why Watch La Boheme

Among one of the most celebrated works of the legendary producer, Jonathan Miller, there are few pieces that hold the legendary status of La Boheme. A Tale of unbridled romance adapted from a Puccini classic, this opera packs the same emotional punch after over a century and two decades its debut at the Teatro Regio. The opera is conducted by Alexander Joel, who does a spectacular job of keeping the crowd entertained, as Puccini’s moving score flows effortlessly with the story. Natalya Romaniw plays the role of Mimi to utter perfection accompanied by the talented Jonathan Tetelman as Rodolfo. Although La Boheme is fundamentally a tale of love and tragedy, it never betrays any hints of a trite and clichéd love story at any point in the performance.

The Story

The story opens with four friends desperate for money in Paris’ Latin Quarter. The poet Rodolfo and his friend Marcello, a painter, attempt to keep the stove alight with the pages from Rodolfo’s latest literary work. The group barely has enough money to pay their landlord, Benoit. Although the show is essentially a tragic piece, the acts are often sprinkled with lighthearted comedy. Mimi, the neighbor, knocks on their door and tells them she has lost her key. As Mimi and Rodolfo search for the lost key in the moonlight, their hands accidentally meet on the floor, and the two fall in love. The emphatic vocals smoothly direct the audience through the performance all the way to the tragic end.
