The AtG Production that started it all
and uprooted opera from the opera house. Our modern adaptation and English translation of the Puccini classic shifted the tale of struggling artists to the present-day, and unfolded entirely inside a historic dive bar in the heart of Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood.
We took La Bohème on tour across the country, and it became Canada’s first ever professionally live-streamed opera.
Now it will be able to be streamed on-demand for the first time, from October 1st to October 29th, 2023.
