La Bohème’ at Virginia Opera

Posted by Julie in News, Virginia Opera

“The standout supporting performance was Jake Gardner as the crusty and conceited old landlord, Benoit. The main roles are excellently cast – the singing is beautiful, dramatic, and the characterizations just, consistent, and restrained.” For the full performance review please read the DC Metro Arts article. La Bohème will open in Richmond, Virginia at Carpenter Theater on November 20th. There will be a matinee showing on November 22. Click here for tickets and further information.
