At the Opera: ALO’s La Boheme!

 (submitted by Doug Shands, producer of KMFA’s Windsounds)
My friend Bruce and I attended the Friday performance of Austin Lyric Opera’s production of Puccini’s La Boheme. The performance was excellent, and the staging was perfect for the story! The singers portrayed their respective roles in a believable and appropriate manner.


La Boheme is an opera wonderfully suited for a neophyte’s first opera. The Austin cast was humorous when called for and sad when necessary. Mimi’s death scene at the conclusion was touching, without being maudlin. The sets were great! They gave the feel of 19th century Paris and in some cases were truly works of art. In my opinion, La Boheme set a high standard for future Austin Lyric Opera productions!
