ABOUT LA BOHEME
This is the AtG production that started it all, and uprooted opera from the opera house.
Our modern adaptation and English translation of the Puccini classic shifts the tale of struggling artists to the present-day, and unfolds entirely inside a historic dive bar in the heart of Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood.
The story is set in modern-day Toronto. We’re not at Café Momus, but at The Tranzac Club: the most comforting dive bar in the heart of the Annex. This is La Bohème. Experience it (with a beer in hand) for the first time.
Sung in English. New English libretto by Joel Ivany.
