FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
BOULDER OPERA COMPANY ANNOUNCES FOUR LIVE (LIMITED IN-PERSON)
PERFORMANCES OF LA BOHEME AT DICKENS OPERA HOUSE
FULLY STAGED PERFORMANCES WILL TAKE PLACE NOVEMBER 13, 14, 19, & 22
September 5, 2020, BOULDER, CO – Boulder Opera presents Giacomo Puccini’s la Boheme—fully staged and in accordance with strict local, state, and national COVID-19 safety guidelines. Performances will be complimented by a wonderful dining experience at Dickens Opera House in Longmont. There will be four shows with limited (50 seat) attendance starting November 13th through the 22nd.
Boulder Opera’s unique production of La Boheme tells the classic, heart-rendering tale of an intimate group of bohemian artists trying to survive in 1830s Paris reimagined to take place within the COVID-19 era of 2020. The lives of the poet Rodolfo, his painter best friend, Marcello (along with Marcello’s full-time singer/sometime girlfriend, Musetta) up-for-anything musician, Schaunard, and the stuffy-but-loveable philosopher, Colline, change forever when Mimì, a neighboring seamstress, knocks on the door. Through them we encounter loyalty, humor, forgiveness, passion, tragedy, and love.
All four performances are in collaboration with pianist and Music Director, Steven Aguiló-Arbues, and feature Phoenix Gayles as Mimi, Nathan Snyde as Rodolfo, Armando Contreras as Marcello and Daniela Guzman as Museta.
Stage Director of Boulder Opera, Michael Travis Risner, says, “My concept is a modern setting in COVID-era America. Please note this isn’t political commentary, simply illustrating the world in which we now live. It is my sincere hope that audiences feel safe coming to our venue, having dinner and a drink with us, keeping those masks and hand sanitizer with you, and enjoy the fourth most performed opera in the world.”
It is recommended that attendees arrive early to reserve a table and enjoy Dickens Opera House’s excellent american tavern cuisine, beer, and wine. Dinner service and seating begins at 6:00 pm for all performances, with the exception of the Sunday matinee, which begins service/seating at 12:00 pm.
Friday, November 13th, at 7:00 pm
Saturday, November 14th, at 7:00 pm
Thursday, November 19th, at 7:00 pm
Sunday, November 22nd, at 1:00 pm
