With the national opening night approaching next week, Opera Theatre Company sent their photographer to the La bohème rehearsals to give you a sneak preview of the team in action and to chat to Director Ben Barnes and some of the amazing artists involved.
La bohème tickets are selling well for their performance in Kilkenny later this month and right across the nationwide tour, so we’d recommend booking tickets soon to make sure you don’t miss out!
OTC’s cast is led by outstanding Irish sopranos Máire Flavin and Sinéad Campbell and passionate Argentinean tenor Pablo Bemsch and baritone Charles Rice. Full cast and biogs HERE
With one of the most ravishingly seductive scores ever written, La bohème has soaring arias and thrilling dramatic ensembles. Puccini’s orchestration is vividly brought to life in this special arrangement for 13-piece ensemble, including the unique RTÉ Con Tempo quartet and other leading players, conducted by Andrew Greenwood.
This strikingly beautiful production, set in Paris in 1930, is directed by OTC’s founder Artistic Director Ben Barnes, with set and costume design by award winning Joe Vanek, lighting design by John Comiskey and movement direction by Libby Seward.
