Opera Talk presents...
LA BOHEME
Join us for a multimedia presentation and discussion of the opera La Boheme, led by our guest speaker from LA Opera's Community Engagement Program.

La Boheme, an opera in four acts by Italian composer Giacomo Puccini, premiered at the Teatro Regio in Turin, Italy, on February 1, 1896. The story, a sweetly tragic romance, was based on the episodic novel Scenes de la vie de boheme (Scenes of Bohemian Life) by French writer Henri Murger. A success from the beginning, it is one of the most frequently performed of all operas.
