Opera & Ballet International proudly presents an Ellen Kent production with international soloists, highly-praised chorus and full orchestra. PUCCINI LA BOHÈME Introducing the international soprano Alyona Kistenyova* as Mimi and starring Olga Perrier*, the international French Soprano as Musetta. Directed by Ellen Kent, this brand new production is traditionally staged and features beautiful sets and costumes. La Bohème is one of the most romantic operas ever written. It tells the tragic tale of the doomed, consumptive Mimi and her love for a penniless writer. The set reflects the Bohemian art of the period and will include a brass band, snow effects and Musetta’s dog will also make an entrance. This classic tale of Parisian love and loss features many famous arias including Your Tiny Hand is Frozen, They Call Me Mimi and Musetta’s Waltz. Sung in Italian with English surtitles. * Cast subject to change.
