With unforgettable characters and some of the most cherished music in the repertoire, Puccini's La Bohème holds a unique place in the hearts of opera lovers. For those new to opera, it is the ideal "first piece," and for devoted opera fans, there is still much to discover from our favorite Bohemians, Mimí, Rodolfo, and friends, in the intimacy of Lambert Hall.
