#AtGBoheme — A modern love story sung in English. At a dive bar.
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.
This fall, we tour the fully-staged remount of our acclaimed, groundbreaking English “transladaptation” of the Puccini classic. Presenting to between Banff and Toronto; ending at the historic Tranzac Club.
The story is set in modern-day Toronto. We’re not at Café Momus, but at The Tranzac Club: the most comforting dive bar in the heart of the Annex. This is La Bohème. Experience it (with a beer in hand) for the first time.
#AtGBoheme is sung in English, with a new English libretto by Joel Ivany. The performance is 2.5 hours with one 30-minute intermission.
