(Oct. 5, 2010)--The UTSA Lyric Theatre will present Giacomo Puccini's opera "La Boheme" at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 8 and at 3 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 10. in the UTSA Arts Building Recital Hall on the Main Campus.
The four-act production is directed by William McCrary, UTSA associate professor of music and Lyric Theatre director. The UTSA Orchestra will perform the music under the direction of Kristin Roach.
According to Wikipedia, "La Boheme" is based on the novel "Scenes de la vie de boheme," a collection of vignettes with no unified plot. The opera focuses on the relationship between Rodolfo and Mimi, which ends in her death.
"La Boheme" has become part of the standard Italian opera repertory and is one of the most frequently performed operas internationally. According to Opera America, it is the second most frequently performed opera in the United States, just behind another Puccini opera, "Madama Butterfly."
The UTSA Lyric Theatre is funded by the Gilbert M. Denman Jr. Opera Endowment, The Opera Guild of San Antonio and The Charlotte and Charles Walker Opera Endowment.
Admission is $20, $15 for students, military and San Antonio Theatre Coalition members. For groups of 10 or more, tickets are $10 each.
