Maryland Opera Studio: Puccini’s La bohème
- The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center
Based on the novel “Scenes de la vie de Bohème” (Scenes of Bohemian Life) by Henry Murger, Giacomo Puccini’s La bohème follows four bohemian roommates struggling to get by in Paris, France. The opera unfolds on a frosty Christmas Eve when fate comes knocking and sets in motion a doomed romance. A gorgeously tragic love story, La bohème features some of the most cherished music in the opera repertoire including “O soave fanciulla” (O lovely girl in the moonlight) and “Che gelida manina” (Your tiny hand is frozen). This opera will be performed in Italian with English supertitles.
