'La Boheme' is returning to Opera Idaho this weekend for the seventh time. The story of bohemian life in the Latin quarter in Paris in the 1830s is also "about the death of innocence" according to tenor Peter Drackley. 

No opera has been presented more often in the company’s history. Irish soprano Celine Byrne and tenor Peter Drackley join Idaho Matters to talk more about the opera.
