La Bohème

Giacomo Puccini

It is a frigid winter in Paris; the moon shines over the roofs of the city. But the virtues of art and romance warm the hearts of the young bohemians, just like the music of Puccini feeds the audience’s soul.

The cold hands of Mimì light a fire in Rodolfo’s heart, but their moments of happiness are soon over and tubercular Mimì’s hands never warm again. The incandescent melodies of Puccini wrap the young band of artists in their loving arms. One of the world’s most beloved operas, La Bohème is presented as a fresh new production under the direction of Katariina Lahti
