Before "Rent"-there was "La Bohème"-and now it's back for the kick-off of Pacific Symphony's new opera-vocal initiative, "Symphonic Voices."
Check out the behind the scenes "out of the pit" video below!
For three nights, the orchestra comes "out of the pit" and onto the stage for the presentation of one of Puccini's most popular and heartbreaking operas. "La Bohème's" timeless tale of carefree Bohemians and star-struck lovers features a cast of world-class opera singers, Pacific Chorale and the Southern California Children's Chorus-filling the stage with their astonishing voices. Pacific Symphony's Music Director Carl St.Clair--who himself enjoys a stellar reputation as an opera conductor in Europe--discusses what it means to take the orchestra "out of the pit" for the upcoming semi-staged concert version of Puccini's opera "La Bohème" to be performed April 19, 21 and 24, 2012, at 8 p.m., at the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall in Costa Mesa, Calif.For more information on "La Bohème" or to purchase tickets call (714) 755-5799 or visit http://www.pacificsymphony.org/boheme
