La Boheme

John Douglas, music director of Temple Opera's production of La Boheme, involves his students in all aspects of production, from building sets to sewing costumes to performing arias.

from AD Amorosi's arts lede in this week's City paper:

"Penned in 1896 before the onslaught of his more garish works, La Bohème is the finest of Giacomo Puccini's operas — a glorious, grueling Bohemian romance that peers into the workmanlike life of artists, poets and seamstresses of the 19th century. There's class struggle, poverty, love and grief to be found in Puccini's Paris streets and its lead characters, Rodolfo and Mimi." Full Story.
