The iconic opera that inspired the Broadway musical Rent, La Bohème is a simple yet profound expression of the love of art and the art of love. Let your heart soar to Puccini’s gorgeous melodies in this timeless story about six artist friends living on little but hope in the Latin Quarter of 19th-century Paris. An audience favorite across the globe for more than 120 years, this opera celebrates the bohemian spirit of youth and the power of love over jealousy, doubt, poverty, and even death.

Two lovers secretly pass letters while prisoners at Bergen-Belsen concentration camp: “They would meet behind the barracks to imagine what their future life could be. Those imaginings formed a story that sustained them. It was a simple story, to be sure—of ordinary breakfasts, and butter for the bread—but it nevertheless held great power and ultimately enabled them to survive. When everything is taken away, only the essential remains.” — DEBORAH BREVOORT

Ellie Caulkins Opera HouseWHAT MANNER OF MAN IS HE?
Don’t miss Falstaff, Verdi’s operatic adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor with selected scenes from Henry IV, Parts I and II. Between indulgences in earthly pleasures, Falstaff devises a plan to seduce the wives of two wealthy gentlemen to gain access to their money—with predictably uproarious results. Enjoy the greatest moments of Shakespeare’s portly buffoon, played brilliantly by baritone Olafur Sigurdarson.
“Olafur Sigurdarson was a perfect incarnation of the title role: his Falstaff is a mix between a fat Beetlejuice (à la Michael Keaton) and a drunk Captain Jack Sparrow (à la Johnny Depp)…It was simply fantastic.” -MUSICALCRITICISM.COM
