Full description
Experience a performance at the Sydney Opera House of La Boheme, the original bohemian love story, set among the fishnets and fairy lights of 1930s. Admire the gorgeous costumes and impressive sets, as you watch this devastating love story play out.   A poet, a painter, a musician, and a philosopher walk into a bar to celebrate a sudden windfall in a lean winter. It’s Christmas Eve, and the poet has just felt the first pangs of great love. When a seamstress knocks on his door searching for candlelight, the pair fall in love.   Between the ideals of love and art, and the cruel realities of cold winters, bitter jealousies and empty pockets, two sets of lovers are trying to find their way. By the time the curtain comes down, you’ll know the answer to the eternal question, is love enough?

Just show your passport in the ticket box and they will issue you a ticket. I made a reservation for the d seat, and it was the seat behind the first floor seat. If you have enough money, I think you can enjoy the power of making a reservation with a good seat.

Box office staff were lovely, venue was amazing and performance was terrific. The one wrinkle to an otherwise great experience - my seat details were not emailed to me within 24 hrs of performance as instructions had said so I had to go to the box office to get my ticket during the afternoon. They found it but it took a lot of time waiting in line and then while they searched. All ended well though.

The opera house is fantastic. The architecture, which is still very impressive, continues inside the building. There is no need to explain the opera La Boheme. A beautiful (but not more) production with impressive singers. In the leading roles Karah Son and Kang Wang very well. Attention: shorts and scenes of applause and laughter when it gets fun takes some getting used to.
