Houston Grand Opera - Puccini's La boheme







Impetuous love.  The romance of Paris.  The pain of regret.  All unfold in one of the world’s greatest love stories.  Rodolfo, a poet, and Mimì meet by chance in his atelier and fall immediately in love.  They weather break-ups and inevitable reunions, but their love proves fragile as the light of a single candle when they confront the realities of bohemian life.

Sung in Italian with projected English translation.













Let's gather by the steps near the picnic table area in between the picnic table area and the theater (look for the red balloons).  Please consider this area will look different when it is getting dark and when there are crowds of people.  The picnic table area is on the left side of the theater as you are looking at the stage.

If you are planning to attend the performance, but do not intend to join the group, please do not rsvp yes to this event.  It falsely enlarges the number of attendees.

We will be sitting in the bring-your-own-chair section on a grassy hill.  Please bring a camping chair or blanket/beach towel to sit on.  It is also suggested to bring your own snacks and beverages as well as bug spray.  No glass containers allowed.  (This is a city park policy ... no one will look.)

Admission is free.  Tickets are not required to sit on the hill.

Concessions and public restrooms are available.

Complimentary surface lot parking is available at the Houston Zoo Main Entrance and at the Houston Garden Center.  Complimentary street parking is available around Hermann Park.  Limited handicapped only parking is available on the Miller lot behind the theater.

For GPS users, please consider even though the theater has a street address, it is located in the center of a public park.  Therefore, the parking areas are not directly adjacent to the theater.  In order to avoid any stress with finding an unfamiliar location at night, please review the MAP of Hermann Park and allow plenty of time to arrive at the theater.

    Combine the 19th century and winter with Puccini and someone is going to die with a beautiful song. What more do you need.
