Opera Wilmington presents La Bohème
Our French-themed series of events this winter and spring culminates with what we know will be a fabulous production of Puccini’s masterpiece of love and loss. At our fundraiser kickoff event Oct. 28, we introduced (to great applause!!) three of our leads: tenor Jonathan Kaufman as Rodolfo, soprano Jemeesa Yarborough as Mimi, and soprano Mary Claire Curran as Musetta.
We are proud to announce other cast members William Lee Bryan (baritone) who will sing the role of Marcello. You enjoyed Bryan as Guglielmo in Opera Wilmington’s 2016 production of Così fan tutte, so make a date to see him again! Rounding out the main cast are baritone Scott Ballantine as Schaunard and perennial favorite Carl Samet as Colline.
The production takes place July 19, 21, 26 and 28, 2019 in UNCW’s Mainstage Theatre.
