La bohème
Giacomo Puccini

Picture it: Paris. 1830. A chance encounter ignites a romance for the ages between the seamstress Mimì and the poet Rodolfo. Meanwhile, Marcello is falling back into the arms of the lovely and vivacious Musetta. La bohème follows these couples and their friends as they bond together to create a family who would do anything for each other.

This coming Halloween weekend, Kentucky Opera brings the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale to life onstage for the entire family with Engelbert Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel.
