Dig the Musical Rent? If So, Check Out Its Inspiration at a Performance of La Boheme

Witness an enduring tale of love and loss when you catch one of the most beloved operas this weekend! On Sunday, March 17th, the Dallas Opera will present La Bohème, the classic production by Giacomo Puccini. Mark your calendars for this event now!

Puccini’s timeless La Bohème combines soaring music and heartbreaking drama to show how love affects the lives of a group of friends. As the fragile seamstress Mimi asks the poet Rodolfo to light her candle, they fall head over heels in love with each other. At the same time, Marcello is falling back into the arms of the feisty and flirtatious Musetta. It soon becomes clear that Mimi’s health is failing, and she and Rodolfo must decide if their relationship can survive the inevitable tragedy ahead.

As Puccini’s most popular work, La Bohème is a sweeping love story which balances the heights of romance with the hard truth that happiness comes at a cost. It is loosely based on the novel Scènes de la vie de bohème by Henri Murger and is one of the best-loved and most frequently performed operas today. It is also the (even looser) basis for the rock opera Rent.

The Dallas Opera is a world-class performing arts organization producing outstanding mainstage and chamber opera repertoire; attracting national and international attention; committed to extensive community outreach and education; and managed to the highest possible standards of artistic excellence, accountability, efficiency and financial sustainability.
