Join Amelia Island Opera for Puccini's timeless masterpiece, La bohème, presented in concert. This opera tells the poignant story of four struggling bohemians – a poet, a painter, a musician, and a philosopher – who share their lives in Paris. Everything changes on a chilling Christmas Eve when a young woman named Mimì seeks a simple favor, igniting a passionate love between her and Rodolfo. Yet, as the flames of love flicker brightly, the shadows of hardship loom. Mimì's ailing health and Rodolfo's financial struggles cast a dark cloud over their romance.

La bohème weaves a narrative that transcends time, accompanied by enchanting and unforgettable music. Don't miss this opportunity to experience the enduring beauty of Puccini's masterpiece. This concert version of La bohème, accompanied by orchestra under the direction of conductor Curtis Tucker, is generously sponsored in part by The Burroughs Family Foundation.
