Puccini’s

LA BOHÈME

An Immortal Story of Love and Loss

It’s love at first sight on a cold Christmas Eve when a shy neighbor seeks warmth in a young poet’s apartment. Both struggling artists, they find joy together in the face of hardship. But as jealousy, illness, and poverty threaten their bond, will their newfound romance survive?

One of the most popular operas of all time, La boheme follows the lives of young artists as they fall in love, chase their dreams, and cope with loss in 19th century Paris. Featuring a timeless score, unforgettable characters, and heart-wrenching romance, Giacomo Puccini’s eternal masterpiece brings bohemian friends and lovers to life in this iconic coming-of-age story.

Bizet’s

LES PÊCHEURS DE PERLES – (The Pearl Fishers)

Passion, Betrayal, and Sacrifice

In a faraway fishing village, one woman tests the bonds of brotherhood when her beauty causes a rift between two men. Both fall for the same woman, a priestess, but agree to let her go for the sake of their friendship. Will they keep their word and resist temptation or will their love triangle – and those surrounding them – go up in flames?

Marked by a famous duet, a shimmering score, and action-packed drama, this exotic story explores the human conflicts of love and honor. Set against the backdrop of a lavish and colorful production, George Bizet’s Les pêcheurs de perles – much like his famed Carmen – lingers with audiences long after the performance is over.
