Yale Opera presents La Bohème February 14–16

bohemeThe Yale School of Music and Yale Opera present a new production of Puccini’s beloved La Bohème this coming February. Set in nineteenth-century Paris, the classic opera tells the poignant story of young artists in love.

Giuseppe Grazioli conducts and Michael Gieleta is the stage director. Both are veterans of Yale Opera: Grazioli has conducted Don Giovanni  (2011) as well as productions of Gianni Schicchi, Suor Angelica, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream; Gieleta directed last spring’s production of Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta.

The cast features the vibrant young singers of the Yale Opera program, which is directed by Doris Yarick-Cross. The Philharmonia Orchestra of Yale will play Puccini’s rich score.

Anya Klepikov, a past winner of Opera America’s Emerging Director/Designer Showcase, is the scenic designer. John Carver Sullivan and William B. Warfel return to Yale Opera as costume designer and lighting designer, respectively.

The opera will be performed February 14–16 at the Shubert Theater. The Friday and Saturday performances take place at 8 pm; the Sunday performance is at 2 pm. The opera will be sung in Italian with projected English supertitles.
