La Bohème La Bohème

La Bohème


Grand Theater


Since its premiere in 1896, Puccini’s La Bohème has become one of the handful of works central to the opera repertoire worldwide. An adaptation of Henri Murger's Scènes de la Vie de Bohème, the opera depicts the bohemian lifestyle of late 19th-century artists and intellectuals: when the frail Mimì knocks on Rodolfo’s door to light her candle on Christmas Eve, a heartbreaking story of love, jealousy and sorrow thus begins, as we peer into the lives of these artists who, although penniless, are far from poor in spirit.


In this production, Shao-Chia LÜ joins long-time collaborator Andreas Homoki to recreate the Quartier Latin of Paris, with a colorful, enormous Christmas tree highlighting the free spirit of life and passion.

National Symphony Orchestra (NSO)

Founded in 1986, the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO), a.k.a. Taiwan Philharmonic, aims to be Taiwan’s top orchestra. NSO became the resident orchestra of the National Concert Hall, and an artistic affiliate of the National Performing Arts Center in 2014. The orchestra has benefited from the leadership of many music directors and principal conductors, including Gerard Akoka, Urs Schneider, HSU Tsang-houei, CHANG Da-shen, Jahja LING, CHIEN Wen-pin, Günther Herbig and Shao-Chia LÜ. In addition to its outstanding concerts, the NSO regularly performs large-scale operas, lectures, festival and outdoor concerts, making the programs of NSO become well-participated events for public while bringing communities into classical music. The NSO has seen its international profile rise significantly since 2011 with multiple international tours, and is now renowned as one of Asia’s leading symphony orchestras.
