“Opera Columbus’s sold-out production of Giacomo Puccini’s La Boheme was causal, fun, and inviting.” – The Columbus Dispatch

La bohème, intimate, musical, lovely, and sad in English, almost in your lap. All the singers and the formidable pianist will delight you.” – WOSU’s Christopher Purdy


Come enjoy the Opera Cabaret performance of Puccini’s La bohème, one of the most popular operas of all time. Directed by Shadowbox’s Stev Guyer, the performances feature young artists performing an abridged, English-language adaptation of this opera centered on a community of artists and the romantic and stormy relationship between Rodolfo and Mimi. First performed in 1896, it became the inspiration for the Broadway musical Rent.

After two capacity performances of La bohème, Opera Columbus and Shadowbox Live have adopted a reservation policy for the remainder of the run. Admission is free, but patrons are encouraged to make advance reservations by calling Shadowbox directly at 614.416.7625. Patrons without reservations will also be seated as capacity allows. Any reservations not claimed by 4:45pm will be released to walk-up patrons.
