SAN FRANCISCO OPERA PRESENTS GIACOMO PUCCINI’S LA BOHÈME
WAR MEMORIAL OPERA HOUSE, JUNE 10–JULY 2

San Francisco Opera continues its 2017 Summer Season on June 10 at the War Memorial Opera House with Giacomo Puccini’s La Bohème. Coinciding with city-wide celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the “Summer of Love,” this revival of one of the greatest love stories in the operatic repertory will feature a brilliant cast including sopranos Erika Grimaldi, Julie Adams and Ellie Dehn; tenor Arturo Chacón-Cruz as Rodolfo; and baritone Audun Iversen. Carlo Montanaro conducts the San Francisco Opera Orchestral and Chorus.

Puccini’s deeply moving work of love and loss among a group of bohemian artists in mid-19th-century Paris will be presented in the 2014 production by English director John Caird and designer David Farley. Hailed by The Mercury News for its “elegant staging” and “insightful direction,” this co-production of San Francisco Opera, Houston Grand Opera and Canadian Opera Company presents the four-act opera with a single intermission and two-hour-and-twenty-minute running time.

Sung in Italian with English supertitles, the eight performances of La Bohème are scheduled for June 10 (7:30 p.m.), 15 (7:30 p.m.), 17 (7:30 p.m.), 20 (7:30 p.m.), 23 (7:30 p.m.), 25 (2 p.m.), 29 (7:30 p.m.); and July 2 (2 p.m.), 2017.
