La Bohème - January 2017

Settle back for an evening with Rodolfo, Mimi, Marcello and Musetta in Puccini's La Bohème. It's about four friends living for their art. It's about friendship and falling in love. It's about sacrifice and never giving up, even if it means parting with your lover - or your favorite coat. Gale Edwards' glittering production provides a perfect setting for these utterly human emotions: in the bohemian streets of 1930s Berlin, in the color and chaos of street fairs and burlesque bars, fairylights and fishnet stockings.
