See it with someone you love
Join Opera Idaho this Valentine's Day for this glorious staging of Puccini's soaring masterpiece of passion and loss in the bustling Latin Quarter of 19th Century Paris. Directed by Andrew Neinaker and starring Celine Byrne as Mimi, follow the Bohemians as they navigate a world on the cusp of change, where poverty and artistry walk hand in hand and love is prized above all else.
What is the story?
Amongst a lively but destitute collective of artists, philosophers, and musicians, poet Rodolfo is entreated by Mimi, his beautiful and delicate neighbor to help her light her last candle. Losing his heart immediately he and Mimi embark on a dizzying relationship that captures the whole scope of Bohemian life, from raucous parties at various watering holes to spirited fights with their landlord. The ultimate paean to love, life and art set to Puccini's heartbreaking score, La Boheme is an unmissable addition to Opera Idaho's 2019/20 season!
