This passionate, indelible story of four struggling young artists – a poet, a painter, a philosopher and a musician – and the women who change them forever, navigating life, love and loss in the Latin Quarter of Paris, will move you to both laughter and tears. Blending riveting theatre and achingly beautiful music, Puccini’s masterpiece, can arguably stake its claim as the world’s most popular opera. Its sumptuous score and timeless tale resonate just as deeply with contemporary audiences as at its premiere in 1896, even inspiring (100 years later) the 1996 Pulitzer prize and Tony Award winning rock musical RENT. Perfect for the first-time opera-goer, and lovers of all ages!
