Accessible, Vibrant, and Engaging, Portland Opera To Go’s “La Bohème” Comes to Hillsboro

10.5.19_BOHEMEPortland Opera To Go returns to Hillsboro with the classic opera tale La Bohème on Saturday, October 5 at the Walters Cultural Arts Center (527 East Main St.). Full of romantic intrigue, La Bohème is a riveting tale of love and loss that has continued to move audiences for over a century. The afternoon will consist of 50 minute opera performance, followed by time for audiences questions and meeting the performers. Doors open at 1 p.m. with a 2 pm show time. The program is recommended for ages 12 and above and admission is a suggested $5 donation. There are no advance ticket sales for this performance—day-of walkups only.

Fresh for fall 2019, Portland Opera To Go’s poignant adaptation of La Bohème, Puccini’s classic story of love and loss in the Latin Quarter, concerns the fortunes of four young men whose lives are changed forever when one of them—Rodolfo—falls in love with the girl upstairs. With themes of love, friendship, facing adversity, and coming-of-age, the performance is a condensed version of the longer classic opera, designed to be enjoyed by all ages.

This is the fifth year the Portland Opera and the Walters have worked together to put forward affordable and educational opera programming for the community—with past shows reaching capacity at every performance since 2011 (200+). Be sure to arrive early to get your seat!
