La bohème

Thursday, May 26, 2022 at 7:30pm

Cahn Auditorium

Joachim Schamberger, director; Patrick Furrer, conductor; Northwestern University Chamber Orchestra 

Four struggling bohemians find their lives forever changed when, one bitterly cold Christmas Eve, a girl named Mimì knocks on their door asking for a candle light. She and poet Rodolfo fall in love, but the happy couple soon awaken to the harsh realities of life: Mimì is gravely ill, and Rodolfo finds himself unable to provide for her. Puccini’s timeless opera celebrates life and love in the face of insurmountable odds. 

Tickets are $18 for the general public and $8 for students with valid ID.
