Why See Dallas Opera - La Boheme?
Experience Puccini's Timeless Romance
Since its premiere in 1896, La Boheme has grown into one of the most beloved operas in the world, with only Puccini's other masterwork Madama Butterfly rivalling it for sheer popularity. It's captivating romance and heart-wrenching tragedy are punctuated by the great composers soaring arias and glorious duets, masterfully fusing music and story-telling that plucks upon the audience's heartstrings. Pack tissues for Dallas Opera's latest production, featuring South African soprano Pumeza Matshikiza and French tenor Jean Francois Borras as impoverished lovers Mimi and Rodolfo.
Set in the Bohemian streets of 1840s Paris, the opera tells the tale of the doomed love between a struggling poet Rodolfo, and a seamstress Mimi. Their romance is an all-consuming one, with many ups and downs, much like the on-again-off-again relationship of their compatriots Musetta and Marcello. When Rodolfo learns Mimi's cough is the first signs of consumption, he feigns jealousy and ends things, in the hope that Mimi finds a richer suitor who is able to look after her. As with all great tragedies, death looms in the wings...
