A chance meeting between a young poet and the beautiful young woman next door ignites one of the most romantic love stories of all time in Opera Colorado's upcoming production of La Bohème. Puccini's classic opera has enchanted generations of opera-lovers and introduced millions to the art form over the years. Due to the popularity of the opera, Opera Colorado has added an additional fifth performance to the schedule.

The opera opens on Saturday, November 6 at 7:30 pm with additional performances on Tuesday, November 9 and Friday, November 12 at 7:30 pm and a 2:00 pm Sunday matinee on November 14.

The team that created Opera Colorado's production of The Pearl Fishers in 2009 will return to create La Bohème. Conductor Sebastian Lang-Lessing will lead the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. Maestro Lang-Lessing is the chief conductor and artistic director of Australia's Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra and was recently named Music Director Designate of the San Antonio Symphony Orchestra. Australian Stage Director Andrew Sinclair is a staff director for Royal Opera House Covent Garden and has staged numerous productions across the U.S.
