The most romantic opera of all time, La bohème appeals to devotees and newcomers alike.

On a snowy Christmas Eve a love affair begins between Mimi and her neighbour Rodolfo. We follow their youthful romance as it blossoms and falters, until Mimi dies in her poet’s arms in the most heart-rending final moments in all of opera.

Sung in Italian with projected English translations.

FREE Program Included, FREE Pre Show Entertainment, FREE Meet & Greet Post Show, FREE Pre Performance Talk in the Cunningham Room.

Project Puccini is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland’s Playing Queensland Fund, and is also supported by the Graeme Wood Foundation.
