La bohéme is the greatest love story in opera. Puccini’s unmatched gift for melody adds remarkable poignancy to the simple joys and heartbreaking sorrows of a group of young Parisians in this universally popular classic – a smash hit for over a century.
Celine Byrne sings the role of Mimi. Her character along with the charming camaraderie and sincere emotional truth makes this among the most appealing in opera. Their surging passions and pathos, masterfully conveyed by a tune-filled romantic score, make La Bohème easy to love – and impossible to forget.
