About the Event
The Deutsche Oper Berlin presents Giacomo Puccini's 'La Bohème' in a production by Götz Friedrich.
The work documents the story of four young men voluntarily embracing a big‐city 'bohemian' lifestyle with its small joys and larger privations, and of two women who reluctantly do the same. Puccini's catchy and memorable music invites us to empathize with the protagonists. To glorify them would be to misread Puccini's intention and Götz Friedrich's detailed portrayal is a clear refusal to do so.
In Italian, with German and English surtitles.

Deutsche Oper Berlin
Deutsche Oper Berlin is the biggest opera house in the German capital, and a member of the Berlin Opera Foundation established in the early 1900s. The original building was destroyed during the Second World War, but was eventually replaced, and the new theater opened in 1961 - six weeks after construction began on the Berlin Wall. Serving West Berlin, its sober, linear design avoids anything that might distract vistiors from the performance. The repertoire of the theater focuses on the great classics such as Mozart, Verdi and Strauss, but frequently presents contemporary opera as well. The Chorus of the Deutsche Oper has been named 'Chorus of the Year' many times for its outstanding performances.
