Considered one of the world’s most popular operas, Puccini’s romantic depiction of Parisian bohemians captivates audiences. Soaring arias and glorious melodies collide with harsh realities. Wolf Trap Opera’s bright young cast will embody these effervescent bohemians, including the impoverished seamstress Mimi and idealistic poet Rodolfo, in this poignant tale.
