Central Coast Opera presents Puccini’s much-loved opera La Bohème
Performed in English.
Central Coast Opera is poised to deliver a stunning production of one of the world’s most loved and well-known opera’s, Puccini’s “La Bohème”.
An affiliate of Central Coast Conservatorium, Central Coast Opera’s latest production, La Bohème, is set to continue the successful run of shows delivered by this ever-expanding opera company. Following on from last year’s sell-out production of Bizet’s Carmen (2017) and highly successful productions of The Magic Flute by Mozart (2016) and Menotti’s Help, Help The Globolinks! (2013), La Bohème is sure to leave the audience spellbound!
Composed by Giacomo Puccini, La Bohème is the quintessential love story and tells the story of a group of friends – a writer, a painter, a musician, a singer, a seamstress and a philosopher living a bohemian life in Paris.
This is one of Puccini’s true masterpieces, featuring some of the most famous arias of all time. Be swept up in the mastery of lush duets, rowdy crowd scenes, and comical catfights taking place under the streetlights of Paris. Watch a tender love affair unfold under gently falling snow. Experience the delicious joy of love, and the passionate jealousy of besotted young lovers as our bohemians step up to face life’s challenges with courage and conviction. Director Warwick Doddrell, has set this timeless love story in post war Paris in 1945. He delicately explores the concepts of love, in a world focused on commercialism, set to the backdrop of one of the world’s most romantic cities embarking on a journey of rediscovery.
La Bohème reminds us through heartachingly beautiful songs that the riches worth having are within us, and no matter what the measure of our lives may be, wealth is about the magnitude of the human spirit and the depth of the human soul.
