Puccini’s La Boheme through 11/16. 7:30. PAY WHAT YOU WISH. Based on the novel “Scenes de la vie de Bohème” (Scenes of Bohemian Life) by Henry Murger, Giacomo Puccini’s La bohème follows four bohemian roommates struggling to get by in Paris, France. The opera unfolds on a frosty Christmas Eve when fate comes knocking and sets in motion a doomed romance. A gorgeously tragic love story, La bohème features some of the most cherished music in the opera repertoire including “O soave fanciulla” (O lovely girl in the moonlight) and “Che gelida manina” (Your tiny hand is frozen). This opera will be performed in Italian with English supertitles.

Beethoven’s Pastoral” Symphony 8 pm. PAY WHAT YOU WISH. (Also streaming.) Relax into the blissfulness of nature with Ludwig van Beethoven’s celebrated Symphony No. 6 in F major. Referred to as the “Pastoral” Symphony, the work contains five movements with the names “Joyful Feelings Upon Arriving in the Country,” “By the Brook,” “Peasant Merrymaking,” “The Thunderstorm” and “The Shepherd’s Song After the Storm.” The symphony hints at Beethoven’s longing for a simple life in the country, a feeling that became more urgent as he lost his hearing and composing proved more difficult.
