La Boheme

Closed October 7, 2012

What better way to open the season than with a brand-new production of Puccini's ultra-romantic blockbuster?

Why See La Boheme?

The enduring taleof a shy seamstress and a passionate poet who chance upon each other on a snowy Parisian evening, La Boheme is known for its lush melodies and characters that touch our humanity. With sweeping orchestral and choral music, this original production from director Davide Livermore shines a spotlight on the true bohemian influences at the turn of the century.

Soprano Norah Amsellem, who received audience and critical acclaim as Desdemona in Otello in 2010 and who frequently performs in Paris, London and Vienna, returns to sing the role of Mimi. Academy of Vocal Arts alumni-turned-international tenor Bryan Hymel makes his company debut as Rodolfo. Returning to the OCP stage as the tumultuous couple Marcello and Musetta are two Philadelphia favorites, baritone Troy Cook and soprano Leah Partridge. Music Director Corrado Rovaris conducts Puccini's evocative score.
