Long before Broadway sensation RENT swept the nation, its predecessor, Giacomo Puccini's La Boheme, was captivating musical lovers with scenes of undying love amid the snowy streets of Paris. In the Atlanta Opera's season opener, six young and penniless Parisian artists stretch the bonds of friendships and relationships while combating life's harsh handouts. When passion and true affection spark in the chilling winter cold, the love shared between Mimi (Grazia Doronzio) and Rofoldo (Bryan Hymel) flames like a candle of no other. In Italian with English supertitles.
