La Boheme

This weekend marks sporano Danielle Pastin's eighth time performing the role of Mimi.

The love story of two bohemian lovers takes place against the backdrop of the romantic city of Paris and sets the stage for a beautiful, but heart-wrenching tale. Syracuse Opera’s production of "La Bohéme" opened on Feb. 5 at The Crouse Hinds Theater.

Syracuse Opera held a dress rehearsal last night of Puccini's "La Boheme" which demonstrated the clear, romantic vision of director Joseph Bascetta and a solid cast.

Puccini's most beloved characters came to life last night as Syracuse Opera unveiled a traditional, but vibrant, vision of 19th-century Paris.

 "The show is fresh, youthful, and realistic,"  said director Joseph Bascetta before the performance. "It is relevant to everyone because it gets down to the basics of life: love, relationships, separations, and death."

The SU community can preview the upcoming production of "La Bohème."

If you like opera, don't miss the opportunity to hear Kate Mangiameli (Musetta) and Christopher Temporelli (Colline) sing excerpts from Puccini's most beloved opera in Crouse Hall at 12:30 P.M. this Thursday.


Syracuse Opera's General and Artistic Director Cathy Wolff explains that this will give voice students and other interested listeners the opportunity to see the singers up close and approach them afterward.

"The members of the cast are very young," she says. "It would be quite a different feel at the MET."
