Giacomo Puccini's love-stoked tearjerker La Boheme, may end tragically, but the opera's multiple levels of passion and sentiment still make for a great "date night." 

And, as the perfect remedy for any tottering romance, La Boheme is also among the most popular operas ever composed. This production comes from the Maggio Musicale in Florence, Italy. It stars are soprano Carmela Remigio and tenor Achiles Machado as the lovers Mimi and Rodolfo, in a performance led by conductor Carlo Montanaro.
