Puccini's score is intoxicatingly beautiful.”
–The Seattle Times
By Giacomo Puccini
A timeless story of love and loss. An audience favorite for over a century, this tale of four young Parisians who dedicate their lives to art and love is guaranteed to touch your heart. Puccini’s lush, romantic score—performed by a 60-piece orchestra—perfectly captures the simple joys and heartbreaking sorrows of the idealistic bohemians. Their camaraderie, conviction, and passions, masterfully conveyed by an iconic score, make La bohème easy to love—and impossible to forget.
The opera fills the McCaw Halls stage with nearly 100 on-stage performers ina spectacular Parisian street scene. The cast will be announced later in 2021. We will invite as many of our 2020 cast members back as possible.
