The Paris of love and art. A poet, a painter, a musician and a philosopher. The tragedies of love and poverty.

Gavan Ring in association with The Cahersiveen Music and Arts Festival presents the Cork Opera House production of La bohème on Sunday 4th August 2024.

This semistaged concert performance is conducted by John O’Brien and directed by Conor Hanratty.

The cast also includes Rory Dunne, Malachy Frame and John Molloy.
