La Boheme

Date: 10 Oct 2021

When Mimì meets Rodolfo, it’s love at first touch.

They head out to bustling Café Momus, where the feisty Musetta and Marcello rekindle their relationship. But even the deepest love can’t warm a freezing winter. The Bohemians have some growing up to do.

Some emotions are too big for words alone, and for that, we have music. La Bohème exposes your soul to the feelings that only music can express. The music soars with the ecstasy of love, crackles with the pain of jealousy and cries with the agony of loss.

Set in 1930s Berlin, this is the final season of one of Opera Australia’s most popular productions. Premiering in 2011 and running on an almost annual basis, this production will have racked up an impressive 183 performances by the time the final curtain falls.

La Bohème boasts a cast including Australian-Chinese tenor Kang Wang who has found immense success internationally and now returns home to make his Opera Australia debut in the role of lovelorn poet Rodolfo. South Korean Ji-Min Park shares the role in his return to the Joan Sutherland Theatre stage.

Stellar soprano Valeria Sepe, sings the role of Mimì. Kang Wang sings as the poet, Rodolfo. Lorenzo Passerini and Paul Fitzsimon conduct.
