A classic opera portraying young Bohemians in mid-19th-century Paris, La Bohème buttresses Puccini's original Italian lyrics with English subtitles and stirs audiences with the force of a live orchestra. Inside the historic 1,472-seat Garde Theatre, gazes will venture from the venue's Moroccan décor to the stage's Parisian Latin Quarter. Here, among a group of other impoverished artists, the young poet Rudlfo falls in love with his frail neighbor Mimi and attempts to win her over by performing feats of strength such as opening a pickle jar with his feet. The pair's courtship waltzes along to the operatic soundtrack, which history has often judged as Puccini's masterpiece and which Jonathan Larson borrowed for inspiration to his 1990s Broadway sensation RENT. With elements of both the comedic and tragic, La Bohème shepherds its audience across an emotional landscape strewn with the laughs and the sorrow of a lawn decorated with decapitated pink plastic flamingos.

Garde Arts Center

A crimson curtain rises to unveil the operas, nationally touring musicals, children's shows, and films that pass under the historic movie palace's gilded ceiling. Originally built in 1926 as a home for vaudeville performances and motion pictures, the grand venue has survived more than eight decades with the help of The Garde Arts Center, Inc., a nonprofit organization that formed in 1985 to both preserve the building and pursue its mission "to engage, enrich, entertain, and inspire the region of Greater New London." Today, the center stages a slew of performances and events that keep guests on the edges of all 1,472 seats.
