Berkshire Opera Festival Presents: La Bohème

Sung in Italian with projected English translations.

One chance meeting can change people’s lives forever. When Rodolfo hears a knock at his door on Christmas Eve, opera’s greatest love story is launched! Puccini’s soaring, aching melodies perfectly capture the emotion of every moment, from the exhilaration of young love at first sight to the story’s unforgettable and heartbreaking conclusion. The unbridled passion of this ageless tale has made it a favorite of audiences for over a century.

Note: There will be a free pre-performance talk on Saturday August 26, with dramaturg Cori Ellison at 12pm (11:45am doors) for all ticket holders. Gain insight into Puccini’s timeless tale of love and loss before curtain at 1pm.
