The stunning Puccini music you adore. The heartbreaking tale of love that inspired a Pulitzer-prize winning rock musical. A story re-envisioned and retold by women. Set against the backdrop of the modern protest movement, our La Femme Bohème re-imagines the iconic Puccini opera La Bohème, with characters fighting to live their lives with honesty and dignity, while challenging notions of sexuality and gender. Join us for a groundbreaking night of opera!
