Absolutely amazing! My first opera! I can't wait to go to the next one. It was beautiful! The seats were perfect and well worth the price. There is a big screen over the top of the stage so you can follow along with the words in English - nice touch and not at all distracting the way I thought it would be. Knowing the story and what they are actually singing just made it that much more enjoyable. Dress up for this.

La Boheme Program
Listen to audio clips from La Boheme.
Puccini’s opera La Boheme was the hit musical of its time. It’s an opera about real people, for real people. Baz Luhrmann’s production will bring the greatest love story ever sung to the people for whom Puccini wrote it: everyone.
While remaining faithful to Puccini’s lush score, Luhrmann’s production is reset in a remarkable design by Academy Award-winner Catherine Martin. The big opera houses of the world seat as many as 4500, but at the Ahmanson you’ll be close to the action. This great love story is told in a new, sexy, easy-to-understand way by gorgeous young performers you’ll fall in love with.
Most of all, what makes this production of La Boheme a must-see is Baz Luhrmann’s extraordinary vision—his unique talent for creating a world of sight, sound and feeling that takes you on a thrilling emotional journey to a place you’ve never been.
