La Bohème at the Sydney Opera House
Thursday 02 January 2020 (WEEKLY event)
No trip to Sydney is complete without a visit to its most famous building. And the best thing to do when you visit the Sydney Opera House is to come inside and see an opera performance.
Experience the romance of the original Bohemian love story at La Bohème, set amongst the fishnets and fairy lights of 1930s Berlin.
A poet, a painter, a musician and a philosopher walk into a bar to celebrate a sudden windfall in a lean winter. It’s Christmas Eve, and the poet has just felt the first pangs of great love.
When a seamstress knocks on his door searching for candlelight, the pair fall in love faster than she can sing “Yes, they call me Mimi” Between the ideals of love and art and the cruel realities of cold winters, bitter jealousies and empty pockets, two sets of lovers are trying to find their way.
By the time this emotional opera finishes, you’ll know the answer to an eternal question: is love enough?
