Giacomo Puccinin’s opera “La Boheme” comes to the Grand in Ellsworth on Saturday, April 5, by live simulcast from the Metropolitan Opera in New York. To help music lovers prepare for this event, the Bagaduce Music Lending Library and Friends of the Blue Hill Public Library will join together to introduce and study this heartbreaking tragedy at 1:00 PM on Friday, April 4, in the Howard Room of the Blue Hill Public Library.
“La Boheme” is the most performed opera in Met history– with good reason. Anita Hartig stars as the frail Mimì in Franco Zeffirelli’s classic production, with Vittorio Grigolo as her passionate lover, Rodolfo.
Local opera enthusiasts Linda Lesko and David Porter will summarize the plot, introduce the music and offer some ideas of special ways to enjoy the Saturday simulcast. All are welcome, no previous opera knowledge is needed, and admission is free. For more information, call the library at 374-5515.
