Cincinnati Opera opens 2022 Summer Festival with LA BOHÈME this month

From June 18 to 25 at the Music Hall, let yourself be carried away by one of the most famous love stories ever sung: Giacomo Pucciniit’s La Boheme. The Cincinnati Opera opens its 2022 summer festival with this beloved opera, marking the company’s return to Music Hall after nearly three years away.

La Bohème has captivated generations of viewers with its unforgettable music and sweet sentimental tale of young bohemian lovers in Paris. The romantic favorite is featured in a new Cincinnati production that brings a colorful and whimsical take on the City of Light to the Music Hall stage.

The Story: In his cold apartment on Christmas Eve, penniless poet Rodolfo prepares to celebrate the holiday with friends on the busy streets of the city. But gently knocking on the door, he meets Mimì, whose only candle has gone out. Searching for a match in the dark, hands touch, sparks fly, and lives change forever.
