City of Perth Opera in the Park: La Bohème

A FREE event supported by Lotterywest and Act-Belong-Commit

West Australian Opera and the City of Perth present Puccini’s masterpiece of love and loss with the popular opera La Bohème. Live simulcast from the Supreme Court Gardens, Perth to the Cummins Theatre, Merredin.

La Bohème is the story of a group of friends and idealists, living freely as they pursue their dreams. At the heart of the story are Rodolfo and Mimi, who fall in love at first sight but their hopeful outlook on life is shattered as they face poverty, illness and loss. This is an evening of beautiful melody and spine-tingling performances, touching on the heartbreaking moments in our lives which unite us all as humans.
