La Bohème

Today I saw my second opera at the Seattle Opera in McCaw Hall, La Bohème. Set in Paris in the 1830s, Giacomo Puccini’s Italian masterpiece tells the heart-wrenching story of a set of artists who play out a story of despair, hope, and love.  A very well known piece, it is the basis for the …
