Our opera La bohème is a four-act story about a group of poor, starving artists in 21st-century Toronto. The four main characters share a crowded living space which sometimes gets so cold that they must burn their own works for warmth. To make matters worse, one of them is dying from a disease. Still, in their strife, the artists find friendship and love.

“This adaptation retains Puccini’s characters and music, so purists will still find something to marvel at.”

- Toronto Life

“The show was a hit and the company that presented it announced itself as a force to be reckoned with in Toronto and Canada’s musical/operatic scene.”

- The Globe and Mail
