There was a great crowd and the opera was flawlessly performed. It was a wonderful evening all around. There were English translations displayed at the sides of the stage that were helpful but not distracting. I will definitely return to the BLO with Goldstar.

The approximate running time is 2 hours and 30 minutes.
It’s Christmastime in Paris as Puccini’s beloved classic La bohème kicks off Boston Lyric Opera’s 2007-2008 Season. Puccini’s lush and romantic music permeates this story of ill-fated love set against the carefree and reckless lifestyle of 19th century bohemian Paris. Come see, hear and feel one of the great romantic stories of all time.
