La Bohème – Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour

Spectacular opera in a spectacular setting: Opera Australia’s Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour returns with La Bohème, in a lavish new production set against the backdrop of the 1968 riots that swept through Paris’ iconic Latin Quarter and nearly brought down the government.

In this heady atmosphere, Puccini’s beloved tale takes on a timeless quality. We love Puccini’s Bohemians with all their flaws because we appreciate what it is to be young and to know only infinite potential, untrammelled by responsibilities or anything as mundane as 'the future'. And that makes it an ageless opera that will never cease to be relevant, no matter where or when it is set.
