Bravo! Vail Music Festival is proud to announce it will be presenting Puccini’s La bohème during the 2024 Festival season. The Philadelphia Orchestra will bring our audiences two performances, conducted by Music and Artistic Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin. La bohème will be presented on Wednesday, July 10, and Friday, July 12, 2024.
Yannick Nézet-Séguin is considered one of the most sought-after conductors in the opera world and is currently conducting La bohème at The Metropolitan Opera. The Philadelphia Orchestra will be performing the opera with Nézet-Séguin at the helm as part of its 2023-24 season.
“When we presented our first opera, Tosca, with Yannick and The Philadelphia Orchestra in 2019, the experience was so magical and impactful that we knew immediately opera belonged at Bravo! Vail,” said Bravo! Vail Artistic Director Anne-Marie McDermott. “I could not be more excited that we are finally seeing its return—this time the beloved classic La bohème.”
Set in 1830s Paris, the story of La bohème follows a group of impoverished artists and the tragic love that transpires between Mimì and Rodolfo. Since its 1896 premiere, La bohème has become one of the most recognized and frequently performed operas in the world, inspiring other works of art including the popular musical Rent.
Further details on the La bohème cast will be announced at a later date.
Tickets will be available to donors in December of 2023 and to the general public beginning in late January of 2024.
The 37th season of Bravo! Vail Music Festival will take place from June 20-August 1, 2024.
