“Masterpiece of emotional manipulation” —New York Times
La Bohéme was first performed in 1896 at the Teatre Regio in Turin, Italy. While it originally received mixed reviews, it quickly became one of the most famous operas ever to be staged. The opera premiered at the Met in 1900 and has gone on to become its most frequent production, with over 1200 performances.
The program is presented with financial assistance from the WV Division of Culture & History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the WV Commission on the Arts.
