2018-19 TOUR: LA BOHÈME

La bohème (“The bohemians”) is the most frequently performed opera in the world and contains some of opera’s most beautiful and compelling music. Peach State Opera’s production of La bohème is staged in 1920s Paris – an era that established the city as the capital of literature, music, art, cinema, and fashion. The opera follows the precarious but colorful life choices of a group of friends (artists, musicians, writers, and working girls) experiencing love and loss in the Latin Quarter. (Read a synopsis of the opera.)

Peach State Opera shares the thrill of live opera with small communities in the Georgia region. Scroll down to see where the company is touring this year and to learn more about the cast and crew.

Aspects of this touring production were made possible by support from the Opera Guild for Atlanta and from Opera Volunteers International.
