How does a group of young artists go from tragedy to hope? From death to life? From loneliness to love? In this visionary treatment of Puccini’s masterpiece La bohème, BLO does just that — by presenting the opera in reverse order. From finish to start, from death to the promise of new love, from loneliness and despair to the joy of friendships, wine, and song, this reversal presents the characters and arias we love in a refreshing, new vision of the story. Our favorite starving young artists and lovers survive to live another day.
