Syracuse Opera presents Puccini’s “La Boheme”
La Bohème features large replicas of Impressionist art and posters as part of the scenery; and a series of art song recitals based on works of art in the exhibit to be performed in the galleries and in the Everson Museum’s Hosmer Auditorium.
La Bohème will be performed on October 23 and 25, 2009, in the John H. Mulroy Civic Center Theaters at Oncenter. The central work in Turner to Cézanne is Renoir’s La Parisienne. The Syracuse Opera plans to recreate Renoir’s art onstage as one of Mimi’s costumes.
Adriana Zabala has created a program called “L’heure exquise”, musical impressions from Turner to Cézanne that pairs 10 works in the exhibit with art songs by Elgar, Debussy, Ravel, Fauré and Duparc set to the poetry of Verlaine, Hugo and Moréas, among others.
There will be performances both in the galleries with the actual paintings and in the Everson’s recital hall where we will project images of the paintings. The recitals will take place in mid-November, in collaboration with the Everson Museum’s exhibition schedule.
