Why See Milwaukee Ballet - La Boheme?


One of the most recognizable operas in the canon, Puccini's La Boheme is a transporting tale of love in a cold climate, joy in the face of darkness and hope in the depths of poverty and disease. Milwaukee Ballet's beautiful ballet captures the beauty and exuberance anew in a vivid production that will make your heart sing on a chilly winter night.

Who were the bohemians?

Since the nineteenth Century, people have been referring to 'bohemians', who were usually artists, musicians and writers who lived life for the experience (and the absinthe.) The characters of La Boheme are just like that, down on luck and rent, but high on love and life. There's scholarly poetry Roldofo and delicate Mimi, an everlasting couple for whom struggle often gets in the middle, and Muschetta and Collins, the outrageous, flirtatious ones who always seem to find their way back to each other.
