Opéra comique in French after Giacomo Puccini. Adapted by Marc-Olivier Dupin.

The Latin Quarter, its student attics and its cafés, the 1830s, a youth at the dawn of the age of reason, artists bubbling with excitement, their passing romances and generous friendships, their games and tragedies: this is the bohemian life and the story of Mimi and Rodolphe.

Puccini’s masterpiece, though composed and performed in Italian, is almost a French work through its literary source – a novel by Henri Murger – and its triumph at the Opéra Comique from 1898 in a translation by Paul Ferrier and performed until 1971. La Bohème is the most beautiful tribute of the Belle Epoque to Romantic Paris.

From the Italian opera in four acts, Marc-Olivier Dupin and Pauline Bureau created an opéra comique in French and give us the opportunity to share – by means of music and images – the intimacy of characters who will touch audiences of all ages.
