Pacific Opera Project Presents La bohéme


Highland Park Ebell Club
131 S. Avenue 57
Los Angeles, CA


Pacific Opera Project tranforms Puccini’s Parisian bohemians to Highland Park hipsters in their first “POP-Up” production. Bringing opera to non-traditional audiences — often for just the price of a movie ticket — is a major aim for this energetic new company. In November (only days after closing their production of Sweeney Todd) they present Puccini’s masterpiece La bohéme (“the bohemians”) in Highland Park. Although for this setting, the translation could read “The Hipsters”. An 1830’s Parisian garret becomes a present day Los Angeles loft apartment during a particularly cold SoCal winter. The artist, poet, philosopher, musician, seamstress, and actress become a graphic designer, screen-play writer, English major, indie-rocker, fashion designer, and well – actress -- as the group deals with the timeless issues of life, love, jealousy, and overdue bills. This production features an all-star cast who have appeared at such places as Opera Theatre of St. Louis, Opera San José, The Glimmerglass Festival, Indianapolis Opera, Los Angeles Opera, Opera Santa Barbara, and Santa Fe Opera. Universally loved, La bohéme is for opera lovers and newbies alike. Truly talented singers and actors will pour their hearts out right at your table. (Table seating with wine and food available.) The audience becomes part of the action in act two as the show extends into the audience at Café Momus. With the poster tag line, “Hipsters...Yeah, I invented that shit. –G. Puccini”, who knows what to expect from this daring young company.
