Nashville Opera's LA BOHEME Set for 10/9 & 11Nashville Opera's LA BOHEME Set for 10/9 & 11
by BWW News Desk - Oct 1, 2014

Rodolfo, a writter, shares a small garret in Paris with Marcello, a painter, Schaunard, a musician, and Colline, a philosopher. The four Bohemians are living in poverty, and yet still find plenty of humor in the situation. On Christmas Eve, their neighbor, a seamstress named Mimi?, knocks on the door because her candle has blown out and she asks Rodolfo for assistance. When he takes her hand, Rodolfo instantly falls in love - and opera has never been the same. With its thrilling, beautiful music and its mixture of high comedy and touching drama, the opera sweeps the viewer away into a world of young love, romance, and ultimately, bittersweet longing. With La Bohe?me, Puccini wonderfully captures just what it means to be young and alive through a brilliant mixture of lightness and darkness, all set to some of the most romantic music ever written.
