Every summer, this romantic and dramatic setting welcomes opera lovers from all over the world. 2017 is no exception, with the staging of Puccini’s La bohème - the tragic love story between a young poet and a seamstress. Directed by Enrico Castiglione, this retelling of the timeless classic will enchant cinema audiences with its intense melodic lyrics, original and refined harmony, instrumental light feel and nuances which are all unmistakable and unique.
For one night only, come and experience this spectacular opera on the big screen, live from Taormina, Sicily!
