AVA Opera Theater on WRTI: Puccini's La Bohéme, Feb. 15 at 3 pm

AVA resident artists Mackenzie Whitney (Rodolfo) and Marina Costa-Jackson (Mimi)

What a perfect way to wrap up Valentine's weekend! Spend Sunday, February 15 from 3 to 5:30 pm with one of the great operatic love stories of all time, Puccini's La Bohéme, presented by the Academy of Vocal Arts on WRTI.

The opera tells the story of a poor poet, and an equally poor seamstress, as they fall in love one cold winter in 19th-century Paris. The opera is based on Scenes of Bohemian Life, a book by Henri Murger. One of the most beloved operas in the repertoire, and a broadcast not to be missed!
