Giacomo Puccini's La Boheme

LA Opera on Air

The LA Opera on Air broadcasts on Classical 90.5 conclude at noon this Saturday, August 11, with a performance of La Boheme by Giacomo Puccini. The Italian libretto is by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa, based on Scènes de la vie de bohème by Henri Murger. The performance will be sung in Italian and will run approximately two hours and forty-five minutes.

In La Boheme, a poet discovers true romance with a lovely, fragile seamstress among the evocative rooftops, cafés and garrets of Paris. Soprano Ailyn Pérez and tenor Stephen Costello, fast-rising young singers who are married in real life, star as Mimi and Rodolfo. Patrick Summers conducts.
