Performances running March 10 – April 2, 2023

Bohème Out of the Box

FREE AND OPEN TO ALL!

 

Overview

San Francisco Opera is taking opera out of the Opera House for Bohème Out of the Box. These free, live performances of an abridged version of Giacomo Puccini’s La Bohème will travel to outdoor locations throughout the Bay Area this spring. The very first opera to be presented by San Francisco Opera 100 years ago, Puccini’s popular work of love and loss among a group of bohemian artists will be performed in an intimate one-hour version on a converted shipping-container-turned-mobile opera stage.


Directed by Jose Maria Condemi, Bohème Out of the Box, sung in Italian and featuring English dialogue, will be performed by guest artists and San Francisco Opera’s Adler Fellows with piano accompaniment. These free performances bring La Bohème’s powerful emotions and soaring arias to Bay Area communities as part of the Company’s Centennial Season.

 

Locations and Dates

Each weekend from March 10th to April 2nd, Bohème Out of the Box will travel to a new outdoor venue around the greater Bay Area, sharing opera in an intimate and powerful new way with local communities free of charge. Each stop will offer a unique setting to gather and experience the power of this timeless tale on an innovative mobile stage.




Please note registration does not guarantee seating location (nor admission in the event venue capacity is reached), as these events are free and open to all. Admission and seating/placement are available on a first come, first served basis, so we encourage you to arrive early and get a great spot!
