Excerpts from "La Bohème", in the MUHBA

On the 23rd of March the museum will host a selection from Puccini’s opera interpreted by students of the Barcelona Opera Studio to piano accompaniment

The series 30 Minuts de Música en el Museu. Del Barroc als nostres dies (30 Minutes of Music in the Museum. From Baroque to the Present Day) continues. On the 23rd of March the series has programmed a selection from Puccini’s opera La Bohème designed to comply with the half hour time limit imposed by the format and the title. On this occasion the selected scenes will be interpreted by students of the Barcelona Opera Studio to piano accompaniment.

Despite initial reservation by local critics on the debut of La Bohème in Turin in 1896, with time the opera has become a repertory standard and one of the most loved by audiences worldwide. La Bohème was Puccini’s fourth opera and the second of his four more mature works: Turandot, La Bohème, Tosca and Madame Butterfly. The story is set in Paris around 1830 and focuses on the love story between a flower embroiderer, Mimi, and an aspiring poet, Rodolfo.

The Barcelona Opera Studio is a workshop for opera singers and accompanying pianists who, for a period of one week, involve themselves with all aspects of a particular opera, including staging, diction, singing, etc. Aside from La Bohème, operas selected this year include Cosi Fan Tutti, Lucia di Lammermoor and Orpheus. Teaching is of the highest level, with Jaume Aragall and Roberto Accurso (vocal coaches), Rafel Duran (acting coach), Rochsanne Taghikhani (language coach) and Ricardo Estrada (musical direction).
