The Greatest Love Story Ever Sung!
The 2020 Festival kicks off with a Parisian flair as La Bohème, Giacomo Puccini’s heart-rending tale of lovers living on borrowed time, returns to the stage of Bass Performance Hall after a seven-year absence. Directed by Linda Ade Brand, this immortal love story follows the lives of four starving artists, struggling to survive in the Latin Quarter of 19th century Paris. Featuring gorgeous sets by Michael Yeargan (two-time Tony winner for South Pacific and Light in the Piazza), Fort Worth Opera’s production is a sumptuous feast for the senses. One of the world’s most popular and enduring operas, La Bohème is filled with lush melodies that soar with the ache of young love and loss.
In Italian with Spanish and English supertitles.
