Yale Opera ‘La Bohème’

“La Bohème” is the most popular opera in the repertoire for good reason. Puccini’s music, and this tale of young bohemians is the perfect remedy for cold February weather. Yale Opera is known for vibrant productions with talented vocalists often on the edge of establishing major careers. This production will be directed by Michael Gieleta and conducted by Giuseppe Grazioli. The opera will be sung in Italian with projected English translations. Information: Feb. 14-16. Shubert Theater, 247 College Street. Tickets are available at the Shubert Theater box office, at 203-562-5666.
