Special thanks to Michael Zahn, MD for sponsoring the 2017-17 Grand Opera Series. We will conclude with a very special performance recorded this summer. Join us September 10th at 4:00 PM with light food and drink at intermission.
One of opera’s most popular and enduring classics, Giacomo Puccini’s La Bohème memorializes the ardent passions of young Bohemian artists struggling to love, create and survive in mid-19th century Paris.
Directed by Enrico Castiglione, La Bohème will be staged on the magnificent outdoor stage of the Ancient Greek Theater of Taormina, overlooking Mount Etna and the picturesque Sicilian coast. It features costumes by Sonia Cammarata and is conducted by Li Xincao. Rising soprano Karen Gardeazabal sings as the tragic Mimì.
