Puccini's 'La Bohéme' at the San Francisco Opera
Saturday, October 24, 2015
Saturday at 1 pm, join us as we journey to 1840's Paris with San Francisco Opera's performance of Giacomo Puccini’s La Bohéme.
La Bohéme tells the tragic love story of artists who are trying to get by while living in crippling poverty. At the center of this microcosm of counter-culture is Rodolfo, a poet, and Mimi, a seamstress, who are helplessly in love with one another.
This 2014 production directed by John Caird features soprano Alexia Voulgaridou and tenor Michael Fabiano as the leads. Also in the production is baritone Alexey Markov as Marcello and soprano Nadine Serra as Musetta. Conductor Giuseppe Finzi leads the orchestra.
