About This Show

“City Opera at its best, showcasing marvelously talented young singers.” — New York Post

“A central pillar of the Italian repertoire, Puccini’s lyrical masterpiece is one of the world’s most popular operas. Among its many recent New York incarnations, City Opera’s La Bohème is “the one to choose.” — The New York Times

This opera has it all — a story of impetuous young love and its power to melt away the cold realities of life, plus a score that features some of the most ravishing music ever composed. Set against the romantic backdrop of the Parisian Latin Quarter, City Opera’s production updates the tale to an era shadowed by World War I. Here, as uncertainty looms large over a country’s future, a small band of bohemians leaves its fate to the powers of romance, art, and sheer youthful optimism.
