For the true romantics amongst you

Opera 2001 will be performing Puccini’s "La Bohème" at 8:30pm on Saturday in the Teatro Circo de Orihuela.

This famous love story between a seamstress called Mimi and a poet called Rodolfo is set in 1830s Paris. The pair almost immediately fall in love with each other. Rodolfo later wants to leave Mimì, supposedly because of her flirtatious behaviour. In fact, it is because Mimì is very ill, and Rodolfo feels guilty, since their life together may have worsened her health even further. They reunite for a brief moment at the end before Mimì dies. A story with a sad ending!

Tickets cost between 18 and 22 Euros; students rate 9 Euros and a 5% discount for large families.

Our teacher Antonio told us yesterday that he would be going.
