La Boheme

Date: 13 Nov 2019

Staged against beautifully detailed sets and costumes, this perennial favourite tells the story of ordinary people living passionate lives.

It is true to Puccini’s signature verismo genre, which focuses on stories about real people rather than fable and mythology.

La Bohème boasts a cast including Australian-Chinese tenor Kang Wang who has found immense success internationally and now returns home to make his Opera Australia debut in the role of lovelorn poet Rodolfo. South Korean Ji-Min Park shares the role in his return to the Joan Sutherland Theatre stage.

South Korean star soprano Karah Son, who wowed audiences in 2019 with her moving portrayal of Cio Cio San in Graeme Murphy’s production of Madama Butterfly, will take the stage as leading lady Mimi. She shares the role with Italian soprano Valeria Sepe making her company debut.

Julie Lea Goodwin and Samuel Dundas reprise the roles of lovers Musetta and Marcello. They perform under the baton of award-winning Italian conductor Carlo Goldstein, who leads an ensemble cast including Opera Australia favourites Richard Anderson, Graeme Macfarlane and Benjamin Rasheed. Michael Lampard makes his Opera Australia debut in the role of Schaunard.
