«All Together Opera»

GIACOMO PUCCINI «LA BOHÈME»

14 July, 2019

Alexandrovsky Park, in front of the Music Hall Theatre

FREE ADMISSION

On 14 July, one of the most popular operas by Giacomo Puccini «La Bohème» will be presented in the Alexandrovsky Park, in front of the Music Hall Theatre.

Composed at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, this opera opened up the world of joys and sorrows of the inhabitants of Montmartre, a Parisian district where artists, poets, and musicians loved to settle. For the first time, the world of mansards and first cabarets found shelter on the big opera stage. A pathetic story of two young people imbued with amazing heartfelt musical lyricism makes the audience empathize with the heroes and attracts people to this opera again and again. Simple, easy to remember, but, at the same time, very vivid musical images of the masterpiece by Giacomo Puccini, ample opportunities to demonstrate vocal skills attract the best singers to it. This is why «La Bohème» can be proud of one of the most impressive number of its stage productions in the history of opera in the world. For the audience of the festival «All Together Opera», the performance of the Puccini’s masterpiece will become a meeting with another wonderful example of the Italian opera distinguished by its lyric and dramatic direction. «La Bohème» will be performed in Alexandrovsky Park against the austere façade of the Music Hall Theatre in which the public’s imagination will be able to easily discern the walls of the houses in a bohemian Parisian quarter.
