One of the most loved and performed operas of all time, La bohème is a nostalgic story that follows a group of young friends hanging out together and experiencing Paris, passion and scarcity. Composer Puccini’s music evokes the wings of desire overlaid with sumptuous melodies.
Although La bohème was originally set in the 1830’s, Opera Kelowna delivers a fresh and stylish Roaring Twenties twist to this beloved classic.
“The cultural impact of La bohème is undeniable: Its story inspired the Broadway hit Rent; its music resonates across dozens of films; and it birthed our romantic vision of the starving artist. All of this is for good reason. Puccini’s exquisite score speaks to our very hearts, eliciting fiery passion, pangs of melancholy, and joie de vivre in equal measure. We are thrilled to share our vision of this iconic work with Okanagan audiences.”
Alexandra Babbel, Artistic Director, Opera Kelowna
La Bohème Story
Based on Henri Murger’s 1851 novel, Scenes from the Bohemian Life, the opera is set in the frigid cold of a Paris winter. Its narrative follows the intertwined lives and loves of a small group of friends: the poet, Rodolfo, the seamstress Mimi, the painter Marcello, the musician Schaunard, the philosopher Colline, and the coquette, Musetta.
