Why See Los Angeles Opera - La Boheme?
BIENVENUE A PARIS
Following the lives of four young bohemians as they fight, fantasize and fall in (and out) of love in the face of poverty, La Boheme is widely regarded as one of Puccini's greatest works, spawning myriad adaptations, even becoming the basis for hit musical RENT. Although the struggle and strife (and excitement) of 1840's Paris may seem worlds away to us now, the themes have remained timeless and universal.
Now, for the first time in 25 years, the LA Opera are presenting a new to LA production from the innovative creator, Barrie Kosky - the mind behind the company's stunning staging of the Magic Flute.
Who are the Bohemians?
Since the Nineteenth Century, people have been referring to bohemians, who were usually artists, musicians, and writers who lived life for the experience (and the absinthe.) The characters of La Boheme are just like that, down on luck and rent, but high on love and life. There are Roldofo and Mimi, an everlasting couple for whom struggle often gets in the middle, and Muschetta and Marcello, the outrageous, flirtatious ones who always seem to find their way back to each other. You can't fail to enjoy the riotous and charismatic tales of these wild young things!
