Pacific Opera Project's barely faithful makeover of Giacomo Puccini's classic opera La Bohéme would appear to be just a joke, and its popular production is often ridiculously daft. The local company has updated librettists Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa's tragic, sentimental story about a dying seamstress, Mimi (alternately portrayed by Maya Rothfuss and Kerri Ann Otaño), and relocated the action from Paris to modern-day Highland Park, necessitating a title change to The Hipsters. But Puccini's melodies are still a sucker punch to the heart amid the churro carts and trendy bars of Northeast L.A., thanks to POP's high-flying, floorboard-stomping crew of comically attuned yet emotionally persuasive vocalists.
