An impetuous love, the romance of Paris, and the pain of regret all unfold in “La bohème,” one of the greatest love stories of all time. Returning to The Pavilion’s stage after eight years is Houston Grand Opera May 24. “La bohème” is the story of Rodolfo and Mimi who meet by chance in the poet’s atelier and fall immediately in love. Mimi joins his group of impoverished, generous friends. They weather break-ups and inevitable reunions, but their love proves fragile as the light of a single candle when they confront the harsh realities of bohemian life. Four of the most talented young singers in America, all Houston Grand Opera Studio members or alumni, perform in this special presentation, along with Houston Grand Opera’s renowned chorus and orchestra. Pre-concert activities in the North Plaza begin at 7 p.m.
