As timeless as love itself ...

Lose your heart to the timeless love story that has moved audiences for generations. In Puccini’s classic tale, six young Parisian artists survive on nothing but their friendship and the promise of a love so strong it transcends even death. Heartwarming and heartbreaking in equal measure, this time-honored story – the inspiration behind Rent – is one of the most popular romances of all time.

Preliminary run time of 2 hours and 44 minutes, including two intermissions.

Sung in Italian with English translations projected above the stage.
