A poet, a painter, a musician and a philosopher walk into a bar…

On a freezing Christmas Eve, love sparks. Two hands meet in the dark and four friends’ lives change forever.

Experience the romance of the original bohemian love story.

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 among the fishnets and fairy lights of 1930s Berlin, this is one of our most popular productions.

Two stellar sopranos share the role of Mimì: Karah Son and Valeria Sepe. Kang Wang and Ji-Min Park sing as the poet, Rodolfo. Julie Lea Goodwin and Samuel Dundas have electric chemistry as the on-again, off-again lovers Musetta and Marcello. Carlo Goldstein and Tahu Matheson conduct.

La Bohème returns to Sydney Opera House from 2 January 2020.
