Experience the Opera that inspired the hit broadway musical, RENT! April 27th at Thalia Mara Hall! Get your tickets before they waltz away:
“For those who may not be experienced opera goers, La Bohéme is the perfect opera with which to start. The story is passionate and the music is some of the most beautiful music you will ever hear. Puccini was a master at writing music that touches the heart and never gets old, no matter how many times you hear it.”
- Jay Dean, Artistic Director

Rodolfo, a poet, and his friends, Marcello, Schaunard, and Colline, manage to have an enjoyable take on life despite their extreme financial difficulties. During the cold winter, a torrid romance is kindled between Rodolfo and a beautiful seamstress named Mimì, but love is not the only thing lurking in the city; tragedy and sadness await them all.
Come join us for this tale of love and loss that is sure to touch everyone’s heart with arias like the “Che gelida manina” (tenor) and “Si, mi chiamano Mimì” (soprano) and Musetta’s famous waltz, “Quando m ‘en vò.”
Starring the vocal talents of Ashley Bell, Michael Boley, Michelle Lange, Travis Sherwood, André Chiang, Stefanos Koroneos, Alexander Adams-Leytes, and Adam Meshejian, with members of the Mississippi Opera Chorus, and featuring students from the St. Andrew's Episcopal School Choir and the University of Mobile Opera & Musical Theatre Program.
