Approximate running time: 135 minutes.
This is the Final Dress Rehearsal for La Boheme
with singers, orchestra, and chorus.
When an aspiring poet falls in love with a fragile seamstress, their intense passion is only matched by their youthful idealism. Can their tender relationship survive the cruelties of life? John Caird
, the director of two of the biggest stage hits of recent years, Le Miserables
and Nicholas Nickleby
, brings his unique touch to this new production of Puccini’s beloved opera. Resident Conductor Giuseppe Finzi
leads this exquisite cast headed by the “warm, luminous tone” (The Classical Review
) of soprano Alexia Voulgaridou
in her Company debut, the intensely expressive Michael Fabiano
and the delightful Nadine Sierra
Doors open at 1:30pm; you may enter through any public entrance.
