La Boheme

Critic's Pick Release Date: 2010-10-06

Giacomo Puccini takes us on a conceptual trip to Bohemia (part of the Czech Republic ever since 1993’s “Velvet Divorce”) in La Bohème — the second most frequently performed opera in the US (following Madama Butterfly), according to OPERA America. An ill-fated romance between a poet and a seamstress factors largely into this opera in four acts, which also inspired Jonathan Larson’s Tony- and Pulitzer-winning rock opera RENT. Under the direction of Kristin Roach, the UTSA Lyric Theatre presents La Bohème for two performances only. $15-$20, 7:30pm Fri & 3pm Sun, UTSA Recital Hall (parking available in lot 8 or the parking garage on Edward Ximenes Blvd at UTSA Blvd), UTSA – Main Campus, One UTSA Circle, (210) 458-4354, advance tickets available at
