Pittsburgh Opera returns to the Benedum Center with Puccini's La bohème, opera's biggest tear-jerker, March 30-April 7.

Set against the backdrop of 1830s Paris, La bohème follows four impoverished artists surviving with little more than friendship, passion, and love for their art. When Rodolfo, a poet, and Mimì, a young seamstress, meet, the two are drawn into a tumultuous and passionate affair with a love that can only be broken by death.

Emotional and dramatic, it's no wonder Puccini's most celebrated opera has transcended the genre, inspiring both a ballet and the Broadway hit musical RENT.

La bohème will make you laugh, and bring you to tears, with its timeless story and captivating music.

Nicole Cabell, winner of the BBC Singer of the World Competition, makes her Pittsburgh Opera debut as Mimì. Jean-Luc Tingaud conducts. Stephanie Havey directs.

As always, English supertitles will be projected above the stage.
