Inspired by French New Wave cinema, Boston Lyric Opera’s stylish new production of La Boheme reimagines the opera against the electrifying backdrop of the 1968 Paris student revolution. This mythical version of mid-century Paris is theatrically and musically vivid, drawing you into a world of young artists and lovers fueled by sexual liberation, intense passion, and burning idealism. A huge hit when Puccini premiered it in 1896, La Boheme’s popularity has not waned over the years, and the story inspired the hit musical Rent, which captured the imagination of a new generation of theatergoers. This exciting new take on the opera will ignite the stage at Citi Performing Arts Center with the incandescent passions of its youthful protagonists.
