Uptown Performs Puccini Classic

Travis Rivers

Uptown Opera will present seven performances of Giacomo Puccini’s “La Boheme” beginning tonight at The Met.

“La Boheme” tells the story of four Parisian devil-may-care bachelor roommates and two of their women. The bohemian life has been the subject of countless stories, plays, movies and musical treatments (including the current Broadway hit, “Rent”). None has yet touched the immense popularity of Puccini’s opera.

The Uptown cast includes Cynthia Kirkman as Mimi, Paul Mueller as her sometimes lover Rudolfo, John Cooper and Julie Mark as Marcello and Musetta, with Paul Linnes as Colline and Reginald Unterseher as Schunard. The opera is produced by Marjory Halvorsen, and directed by Bill Graham. James Schoepflin will conduct.

All performances are at The Met.

Performance times: 8 p.m. tonight and Saturday, 3 p.m. Sunday, 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday; 8 p.m. Sept. 13 and 14.

Tickets: $14-$26, available at G&B; outlets, 325-SEAT or (800) 325-SEAT.
