Pacific Opera Project's most iconic production returns due to popular demand. Puccini's masterpiece, La bohème, updated to current day Highland Park. In POP’s production of La bohème: AKA “The Hipsters,” an 1830s Parisian garret becomes a present day Los Angeles loft apartment during a particularly cold SoCal winter. LA's housing crisis comes to life on stage as the artist, poet, philosopher, musician, and seamstress become a graphic designer, screenplay writer, English major, indie-rocker, and fashion designer dealing with the timeless issues of life, love, jealousy, and overdue bills. This production is the inspiration behind POP’s signature logo, “Hipster Puccini.” This will be the fourth incarnation of POP's trademark production. The opera is sung in Italian with projected “cleverly ironic” English supertitles.
