  • Opera San Antonio
A century before Rent rocked its way onto Broadway, another tale of bohemians in the big city splashed onto the scene — Giacomo Puccini’s La Bohème. Set in Paris’ Latin Quarter, the opera is centered on the tragic romance between seamstress Mimi and poet Rodolfo, who meet when Mimi knocks on his door seeking to relight an extinguished candle.

Moments to look out for include Mimi’s first-act aria Mi Chiamano Mimì, the children’s chorus in the opening of the second act, and healthy doses of comic relief from the imperious Musetta. Opera San Antonio’s production features Amanda Kingston as Mimi and Derrek Stark as Rodolfo, with live orchestral accompaniment by members of the San Antonio Symphony. It is sung in Italian with English supertitles, and tickets to the opera include admission to a pre-show lecture providing additional context to the story.



$35-$190, 7:30pm Thu May 17 & Sat May 19, Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, H-E-B Performance Hall, 100 Auditorium Circle, (210) 223-8624, operasa.org.
