See La Boheme as you've never seen it before when Opera Australia’s touring company take it on the road in outback Australia. We get to know key members of the opera company as individual characters, and see the impact they have on audiences in the towns they pass through.
The documentary conveys key moments in the story of the opera, revealing the drama in sequence from the first to last acts, and explores the parallels between the lives of the bohemian opera characters, the touring company and the country audiences. The final act brings the audience to tears with the beauty of Puccini’s music and the tragedy of the story.
