LA BOHEME 30 NOV - 4 DEC 2016 BORD GAIS ENERGY THEATRE
The Novaya Opera Theatre of Moscow with Celine Byrne
Latest News Update
LA BOHEME at The Bord Gais Energy Theatre 30 November – 04 December.
This production features some of Russia’s finest singers - and they will be joined for three performances in Dublin by Celine Byrne, Ireland’s own star international soprano. Celine will travel to Moscow in late October to rehearse the part with her fellow artistes and to familiarise herself with the sets and stage direction.
LA BOHEME is a great favourite in the world of opera and features a group of Bohemians living in the Latin Quarter of Paris.
PUCCINNI’s music is sublime, with several famous arias, and the romantic and tragic story will make a lasting impression on Dublin audiences way beyond their departure from the theatre.
The following are quotes from the ultra-critical Russian press who reviewed The Premier of LA BOHEME in Moscow 4th December 2015
"The action takes place in 1940s Paris, with the atmosphere of a country still suffering from shock - and that's why the melodrama has such anguish, and the love of Rodolfo and Mimi, and Marcello and Musetta, is so passionate and emotional."
" ....marvellous choir and crowd scenes, with Santa Claus flying with balloons, and street musicians dressed like Napoleonic soldiers."
"All the cast sang well, but the four main characters comprised a quartet to decorate the most prestigious opera houses in the world."
"The graceful sets and imaginative lighting support the singing - which is very strong."
