Paris 1900. Penniless writer Rodolfo believes that art is all he needs, until he meets Mimi, the lonely seamstress who lives upstairs.
So begins a timeless love story that blooms, fades and rekindles with the passing seasons. But while the couple's friends Marcello and Musetta passionately row and make up, a force greater than love threatens Rodolfo and Mimi.
Puccini's opera of passion, friendship and heartbreak is conducted by Kevin John Edusei.
