Fall in Love

One of the best known and beloved operas of all time, La bohème is the cherished story of love and loss. Beginning as a tale of youth, romance and optimism, a group of passionate Bohemians in Paris live as artists and musicians, celebrating life’s victories and weathering its hardships. As time passes, love turns to loss and hopefulness to heartache. Puccini’s timeless story of love, friendship and unwavering dreams has been cherished for more than a century.

Maestro Leonardo Vordoni returns to Opera Omaha (Cinderella, 2014) to conduct this classic production. Omaha favorite Leah Partridge (Micaëla, Carmen, 2013, Opera Outdoors 2015, OPA Celebrate 10) will portray Mimì for the first time in these Opera Omaha performances not to be missed.
