La Boheme is coming to the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion courtesy of LA Opera from September 14 to August 6 and Metrolink wants to help you see it by giving you a chance to win a pair of tickets!
Conducted by James Conlon, the company’s Richard Seaver Music Director, this fresh take on Puccini’s classic is the creation of Barrie Kosky, one of Europe’s most inventive stage directors. Mr. Kosky first wowed Angelenos with his sold-out productions of The Magic Flute, in the animation-driven staging which returns later this season.
A not-completely-traditional production keeps the opera’s original 19th-century setting with a few surprises along the way, telling the story with raw emotional immediacy.
It’s 19th-century Paris, a world capital filled with bustling cafes, bold ideas and creative energy. Six struggling young artists dream of making it big and finding their perfect matches. Along the way, they learn to celebrate life for all that it’s worth.
A perennial audience favorite since its 1896 premiere, La Bohème sings to the romantic in all of us. It remains one of the most beloved and most frequently performed of all operas.
We’re giving away two pairs of tickets for the showing on Wednesday, October 2 at 7:30 p.m.! For your chance to win, head to our Facebook between Monday, September 23 at 9 a.m. and Thursday, September 26 at 9 a.m. and follow the instructions to be eligible to win two tickets to the show!
