The Jewish Community Center of Syracuse will be hosting a preview of Syracuse Opera "La Boheme" at 7 p.m. Tuesday Oct. 6 in the Anne and Hy Miller Family Auditorium. The performance is free and open to the general public.
We hope that this is the first of many collaborations with Syracuse Opera and we are thrilled to be able to host this preview, said Julie Fleck, director of adult programming. Any time we can offer high quality programming and open it up to the general public, it helps us achieve our mission of serving and enriching the lives of those in our community.
Syracuse Opera Director of Music Douglas Kinney Frost, who will offer an overview of the opera, will host the preview. He will be joined by artists from the main stage production as well as a debut performance from the inaugural Syracuse Opera Children's Chorus both of which will perform musical numbers from the upcoming production.
Those attending will have the opportunity to sign up to be a part of the Jewish Community Center's group that will be attending the mainstage production of Syracuse Opera "La Boheme" at 2 p.m. Sunday Oct. 25 at the Civic Center.
One of the most performed operatic works of all time, Puccini "La Boheme" follows the lives of two sets of lovers XRodolfo and Mimi, Marcello and Musetta. Set in the run-down garrets of Paris in the 1830s, the opera follows the young Bohemians as they struggle with their daily finances and relationships, and as they strive to be free and independent, resisting the tight confines of authority.
