In exciting news for local audiences, Dandenong is the first stop for Opera Australia’s latest national tour.

Experience the original bohemian love story that inspired Rent and Moulin Rouge when Puccini’s beloved La Bohème graces the Drum Theatre stage this July, preceding a series of performances across Victoria, New South Wales, and Tasmania in 2024.

When Mimi meets Rodolfo, it’s love at first touch. They head out to bustling Café Momus, where the feisty Musetta and Marcello rekindle their relationship.

For our bohemians, everything is possible and the future can’t come quickly enough. Rodolfo and his friends are determined to make their mark on the world and experience everything it has to offer – but right now they’d settle for something warm to eat.

Some emotions are too big for words alone, and for that, we have music. La Boheme exposes your soul to the feelings that only music can express.

Puccini’s score has always captured the soaring spirit of young love and this new production breathes fresh life into one of the world’s favourite operas.

Award-winning director Dean Bryant (Anything Goes, Sweet Charity) brings his trademark wit and vivacity to this new staging, which captures that giddy moment where you and your friends feel you’ll live forever.

Opera Australia is one of the world’s most celebrated performing arts companies with an ambition to placing an Australia stamp on great stories.  The company is committed to developing and nurturing new generations of Australian talent and making opera more accessible.

La Bohéme is on at Drum Theatre on Friday 12 July and Saturday 13 July at 7.30pm. Tickets start at $25 for Under 30s, and $50 for Drum Members.

Drum Theatre is great theatre in your own backyard. Visit or phone the Box Office on 8571 1666 to secure your seats.
