About La Boheme Milwaukee
La Boheme is a famous, four-act
opera composed by Giacomo Puccini to an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa. La Boheme made its world premiere
in Turin on February 1, 1896 at the Teatro Regio, and it was conducted by Arturo Toscanini. Since its inception, La Boheme
has become part of the standard Italian opera repertory. In fact, it is one of the most frequently performed operas worldwide.
In 1946, Arturo Toscanini conducted a performance of La Boheme on the radio with the NBC Symphony Orchestra, and it was released
as a record. It remains the only recording of a Puccini opera by its original conductor.
As La Boheme brings its familiar
songs to Milwaukee's Uihlein Hall at Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, a talented cast will be performing all of your

as Mimi, tenor Noah Stewart as Rodolfo, soprano Katrina Thurman, baritone Corey McKern, bass-baritone Matthew Trevino, and

life in France, and this is your opportunity to experience what everyone has been raving about. If you're looking for a nice
night out with a date or simply by yourself, a trip to the opera is the perfect way to unwind. With a breathtaking score by
