We are so excited to invite you to a very intimate production of Puccini’s La Boheme right in the heart of Wallingford. We are excited to bring some of the region’s most up-and-coming young opera singers, many of whom have received honors and awards in the Metropolitan Opera’s National Council Auditions, and many who have performed with Seattle Opera, Tacoma Opera, Skagit Opera, Bellevue Opera, Puget Sound Concert Opera, and many others. This is the perfect date night opera, and the perfect opera for first time opera go-ers; grab a bite to eat on 45th, and walk over to Chapel for an incredibly romantic evening of one of opera’s most popular love stories (and get out in time get some comfort food over at Molly Moon’s after the show!).Spielplatz Productions and Vespertine Opera Theater bring Puccini’s beloved opera to the intimate setting of the Chapel Performance Space. The cast includes Jon Farmer, Tess Altiveros, Ksenia Popova, Jose Rubio, Ryan Bede, Micah Parker and Brian Trunk. Piano accompaniment by Rhonda Kline, design by Evan Merryman Ritter and Joe Wagner, direction by Dan Miller. Proceeds will go towards the advancement of the arts in K12 schools. Sung in Italian with English supertitles.
