La Boheme 160 new sceneLa Bohème

by Giacomo Puccini
Friday, October 14, 8 PM
Conductor: Carlo Rizzi| Mimì: Ailyn Pérez | Musetta: Susanna Phillips | Rodolfo: Dmytro Popov | Marcello: David Bizic | Schaunard: Rodion Pogossov | Colline: Ryan Speedo Green | Benoit/Alcindoro: John Del Carlo

La Bohème, the passionate, timeless, and indelible story of love among young artists in Paris, can stake its claim as the world’s most popular opera. It has a marvelous ability to make a powerful first impression and to reveal unsuspected treasures after dozens of hearings.

Italiana Algiers 160L’Italiana in Algeri

by Gioachino Rossini
Saturday, October 15, 8 PM
Conductor: James Levine | Isabella: Elizabeth DeShong | Lindoro: René Barbera | Taddeo: Nicola Alaimo | Mustafà: Ildar Abdrazakov

One of Rossini’s earliest successes (written when he was 21), L’Italiana in Algeri is clearly the product of youthful vitality and charming irreverence. The score of this comic farce is a brilliant convergence of giddy madness and creative sophistication. The opportunities for comedy in the paradigmatic story are obvious, but the surprise is in the masterful way the music makes the situations come alive, and in the genuine human emotion of the characters.
