‘LaBoheme’ soon to be at the Times Union Center

Teatro Lirico D'Europa brings its highly acclaimed, full-scale, traditional, Italian production of Puccini's timeless “LA BOHÈME” to Jacksonville for one night only with an international cast of soloists, full orchestra and chorus. English super titles are projected above the stage.

The opera La Bohème centers around the tragic love story of Mimí and Rodolfo. The story is set in 1830 Paris and shows the lifestyle of four struggling bohemians – a poet, a painter, a musician and a philosopher. Shivering in a garret and owing rent, their lives change forever the night Colline the Philosopher and Schaunard the Musician earn enough money for all of the friends to buy a meal at a nearby restaurant. Rodolfo the Poet stays behind to finish his writing but is interrupted by Lucia, known as Mimi, a seamstress from the next apartment over. They are instantly attracted to each other, and decide to catch up with the others."

Teatro Lirico D'Europa had a stunning success with a production of Puccini's LA BOHEME that would have satisfied the most ardent opera fan. Here was a production in a classic style with solid acting and depth of sound, both of which stirred the musical soul of an audience so intensely satisfied. Artistic director Giorgio Lalov has the gift of "assemblage d'art". - The Chicago Star - D. K. Luksetich
