How often do you see a show for $35?! Seats were upper balcony so we were a bit far up, but at the Shubert that doesn't really matter.

Description

Music by Giacomo Puccini

Libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica

Co-production with Opera Theatre of St. Louis

Sung in Italian with projected English translation

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.
