This sensational new productin of La boheme, the inspired concept of director Gale Edwards, is set in early 1930s Berlin, a city of liberal indulgence, glittering Spiegeltents and glitzy cabaret clubs, where no excess is considered too much.
Charismatic Ji-Min Park gives a stunning performance as Rodolfo, the poet who falls in love with Mimi, played by Takesha Meshe Kizart, who delivers a dazzling version of the impoverished working girl.
Renowned conductor Shao-Chia Lu draws from the orchestra and chorus a magnificent performance of Puccini's lush score.

“The director Gale Edwards updates from 1830s Paris to 1930s Berlin, hardly an unreasonable decision...From the start this is a very physical staging...Admirably singing comes only from the attractive Jose Carbo, whose Marcello also boasts a notably manly but sensitive, un-actorship presence.”
