The Sunday Opera: Puccini's "La Boheme" from the Los Angeles Opera

xxx_boheme_final.jpg

We stay in Los Angeles on this week’s Sunday Opera (8/30 3:00 p.m.) with their production of Puccini’s “La Boheme” from last season.   The cast for this beloved opera includes Marina Costa-Jackson as Mimi and Samir Pirgu as her Rodolfo.  The tempestuous Musetta is Erica Petrocelli and Marcello, Kihun Yoon, and the final two “Bohemians” are Nicholas Brownlee as Colline, Michael J. Hawk as Schaunard.  James Conlon Conducts.  

After the opera, we’ll have more music of Puccini but not Giacomo as Michael Kownacky brings you music of the Puccini dynasty, Lucca’s first family of music.  The pieces include works by Jacopo Puccini (great-great-grandfather), Antoine Benedetto Maria Puccini (great-grandfather), and Michele Puccini (father).  We’ll close the evening with and impressive work by Hans Rott, an Austrian composer whose tragic life ended far too early at the age of 25.
