Mercury Opera presents Puccini’s La Boheme

February 27 - March 9

Mercury Opera, known for messing with the public’s perception of opera, returns to the notorious Chez Pierre Cabaret with their newest offering: La Boheme.

This interpretation of La Boheme, the opera that inspired_ RENT_, transplants Puccini’s beloved tale of youth, love, and despair to New York’s Alphabet City circa 1979, where disco and drag queens, painters, punk rockers, and poets converged. Wear your best version of this period’s fashions, join the party, and expect to be transported while being a part of the action.

All seats are $55 in advance plus applicable fees, or – $65 cash at the door. Standing room $30 subject to availability.
