IPR broadcasts Puccini's La Bohème

A flickering candle and an accidental touch of cold hands in the dark - so begins one of the greatest love stories in all of opera. Join the bohemian revolution in the heart of Paris as a group of struggling artists strives to create beautiful art, find love and ultimately live life to the fullest in this romantic operatic blockbuster, which features some of the most familiar and beautiful music ever written. For over 100 years, Puccini’s most celebrated opera has moved audiences to laughter and tears with its irresistible music and its timeless tale. The production is sung in Italian and features soprano Julie Adams, tenor Joshua Guerrero and soprano Mané Galoyan as Mimì, Rodolfo and Musetta, respectively, with conductor Michael Christie leading the DMMO Festival Orchestra.
