La Bohème Warhola LGBT Night

Thu, Jul 12 2018 at 7:30 pm

Join our host, the divine Akasha L. Van-Cartier, for a special LGBT Night at the Opera, on Thursday 12 July at 7:30 pm. Enjoy our specialty cocktail and other surprises in this Warhol-themed evening.

 

Re-imagine the antics and love affairs of four ‘Bohemian’ artists, set not in a nineteenth-century Parisian garret, but instead in the revolutionary artsy world of 1960s New York.

Maybe even imagine it set in The Factory, the tin foil-covered loft where Andrew Warhola became Andy Warhol, the father of pop art as well as an artistic symbol of a new era.

Our production is inspired by Andy and created by an innovative New York-based team. They will transform Puccini’s fabulous opera, in a radical, intimate, modern metamorphosis… but Puccini’s heart will still beat as strongly and his music sing as truly and unmistakably as ever.

 

Sung in English with projected titles in English.

Orchestration co-commissioned with Heartbeat Opera, NYC
