Oscar-winning designer Catherine Martin created these conceptualized La Boheme costumes for the coquette Musetta (famous in opera for her Act II "Waltz" when this dress would be worn) and her former lover, the painter Marcello.

In La Boheme, the doomed love affair between seamstress Mimi and the artist Rodolfo is set against the world of bohemian Paris. This new Broadway production is set in 1957, and will be sung in the original Italian with English surtitles. The three women alternating in the role of Mimi are Lisa Hopkins from the United States, Wei Huang from China, and Ekaterina Solovyeva from Russia. The three men alternating in the role of Roldolfo are Alfred Boe from England and Jesus Garcia and David Miller, both from the United States.

La Boheme will have a pre-Broadway engagement at San Francisco's Curran Theatre Oct. 1-Nov. 10. Director Luhrmann's production of the opera, billed here as "The Greatest Love Story Ever Sung," will open at the Broadway Theatre Dec. 8, following previews that begin Nov. 26.
