Sonya Yoncheva as Mimì in Puccini's ‘La Bohème’.

Sonya Yoncheva, Susanna Phillips and Michael Fabiano star in Puccini's timeless masterwork of emotional manipulation, La BohÈme.

Set in Paris where a group of struggling artists live in destitute slum conditions, the determination to celebrate love in all its simple glory still exists. When Rodolfo helps his pretty neighbour, Mimi, to find her keys in the dark, their hands touch, and attraction flares within them. The story then moves on over the course of a few months, where Mimi is found to be terminally ill from consumption; despite having broken up, Rodolfo cares for her deeply, and is heartbroken to hear that she is dying. He carries her upstairs to his couch and caresses her, as she slips away in his arms.

La Boheme was created by Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924), the production and set design is by Franco Zeffirelli. La BohÈme will be transmitted live at Carib 5 this Saturday, February 24, at 12:30 p.m.
