BAY SHORE LYRIC OPERA will present two performances of Giacomo Puccini’s opera La Bohème, May 19 & 20, 2018 as part of their 2018 season at the beautiful Veterans Memorial Hall of Santa Cruz, 846 Front St, Santa Cruz, CA 95060.  This production is fully-staged, sung in Italian with English supertitles and will feature BSLO’s artists accompanied by the members of the Winchester Orchestra under the baton of Michael DiGiacinto.  Wine and a light appetizer will be included in the ticket price as well.

La Bohème had its world premiere at the Teatro Regio, Turin, 1896.  The opera was based on the famous French novelist and poet Henri Muger's Scènes de la Vie de Bohème.  La Bohème, the passionate, timeless and indelible story of love among young artists in Paris can stake its claim as one of the world’s most popular operas. Our production is family friendly and we welcome children 12 and under free.  Produced in an intimate venue, this opera has the ability to make a powerful first impression and to reveal unsuspected treasures after dozens of hearings. At first glance, La Bohème is the definitive depiction of the joys and sorrows of love and loss.  In the intimate setting of the beautiful Veterans Memorial Building located in downtown Santa Cruz, a closer inspection of this opera reveals the deep emotional significance hidden in seemingly trivial things like a hand muff or a bonnet, an old overcoat or a chance meeting with a neighbor.

Bay Shore Lyric Opera’s artists perform with West Bay Opera, Opera San Jose and other Bay Area companies.  Cast members include: Delmar McComb, Julio Ferrari, Jennifer Der Torossian-Studley and Kristin Genis-Lund, among others. The production will include English supertitles, with wine and a light appetizer included in the ticket price.
