The ultimate “date night” opera, and the original story behind the blockbuster “Rent,” La Bohème is a masterwork by Puccini. Two sets of lovers in Paris eke out a meager existence as best they can, but knowing better than most what is truly important in life. From the exuberance of joy to the sorrow of loss – and the myriad games men and women play in the crazy game of love – La Bohème will be a dazzling melodic journey in a sumptuous new production.
With a cast of nationally and internationally recognized singers all making their Virginia Opera debuts - reprising roles for which they have garnered acclaim across the globe - this is going to be a major production!
