Set in 1830’s Paris, La Bohème is one of Puccini’s most beloved operas, and is one of the most frequently performed operas worldwide. The opera in four acts tells the tragic love story between a poet and a seamstress, based on a book by Henri Murger called Scenes from a Bohemian Life. Over the course of two hours, Puccini treats the audience to some of the most famous opera arias in the world, including the tenor solo ‘Che gelida manina’ (‘Your tiny hand is frozen’) and ‘Sì, mi chiamano Mimì’ (‘Yes, they call me Mimi’).
Conducted by Enrique Carreón-Robledo, this production of La Bohème is not to be missed! Maestro Carreón-Robledo is renowned for his engaging performances and fervent connection with instrumentalists, singers, and ballet ensembles. As an Operatic conductor he has been described by the specialized press as: “something of a crazy Zen calligrapher”, “a fireball of energy, guiding orchestra and singers through every emotion of the score”.
