by Giacomo Puccini • High in a Paris garret, a candle sputters out. And, as two strangers fumble in the dark, the spark of love is unexpectedly ignited. Puccini’s passionate and timeless masterpiece is presented in a beloved period production by Jean-Pierre Ponnelle and Peter J. Hall. Starring soprano Ana María Martínez as Mimi and tenor Bryan Hymel as Rodolfo at the head of an all-star international cast. This witty and romantic celebration of life lived “on the fringe” will be staged by Peter Kazaras and conducted by Riccardo Frizza in his company debut. There’s a little bohemian in all of us; isn’t it time you rediscovered yours?
