This was a fun, romantic and lively Opera. My first Opera and I loved the vocals and ranges. I will definitely attend another.

Set design was gorgeous. I had never been to an opera of any kind, and this show was a fantastic introduction to that genre of theater.

Description

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.
