PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Opera Company of Philadelphia opens its season September 28th with Puccini’s “La Boheme,” a love story set in Paris in the 1800s.
General Director David Devan says this production marries gorgeous music, singing and local masterpieces on stage.
“You will actually see the rooftops of Paris in a painted form, and we went with our partners, the Barnes Foundation and Philadelphia Museum of Art, and we’re working with their curators to use art from their galleries projected digitally as the set,” Devan explains.
He says the music and story both have wide appeal.
“If anybody’s thinking about dipping their toes in operatic waters, this is the one to do it.”
