La Boheme

Dorothy Chandler Pavilion
135 N. Grand Avenue Los Angeles

For the first time in 25 years, our Bohemians have moved to a new address. Staged by theatrical dynamo Barrie Kosky, this new-to-L.A. production sweeps you into the bustling cafés and hidden corners of 19th-century Paris. Follow the triumphs and toils of a band of struggling young artists as they search for love, life and laughter against impossible odds. Is this the most romantic of all operas? We think so!

Los Angeles Times - Somewhat Recommended

"...This, though, was opening night, and it felt a work in progress. Cast members might well become more alert to nuance and find their own personal approaches to characters as the run continues. And as the first new "La Boheme" since 1993, Kosky's is the move with the most moxie for a company figuring out what the next step must be."

Broadway World - Highly Recommended

"...The orchestra's sound was glorious, some passages translucent and others romantically blended. One of Los Angeles Opera's greatest assets is Conductor James Conlon who played with well thought out rubato and drew both lyric and dramatic virtuosity from his instrumental artists. This was a performance to be savored and its audience rewarded the performers with thunderous applause at its end. In the final moments before the curtain came down, Conlon brought all his players on stage so that they, too, could enjoy the audience's response to their work."

"...Sure, it’s always gorgeous to listen to, especially with this orchestra, which never sounded better under conductor James Conlon, conducting La Bohčme for the first time with LA Opera as he beautifully draws out all the score’s romantic sonorities. (Artistic Director Plácido Domingo, who sometimes conducts, was nowhere to be seen or heard from on opening night, as he still faces accusations of sexual misconduct). Director Barry Kosky says in the program notes that the opera is about death. But that didn’t mean he had to suck the life out of this perfect score."
