Scenes from Act III.

La Boheme is all set for the Gala Opening on Oct. 3 Friday 8pm! We were able to watch the run through of Acts III and Acts IV of La Boheme. The voices of the La Boheme cast were solid even without microphones. The love songs were beautiful even if you don’t understand the lyrics.

The biggest complaint from first time Opera watchers is that they don’t understand what is going on. Before watching the show, it is your responsibility to read the synopsis of the 4 acts and the translation of the songs to english. Here is a helpful site to learn more about La Boheme.

I’ve been meaning to watch this, especially since my partner and I are having our second anniversary that week (on the 4th to be exact)! Ang alam ko nga, may afternoon showing.
I actually have the mp3s of the songs in my computer, and they make good background music when I’m writing. But thanks for the video clips! It’s much more emotional seeing the songs acted out.

my lola started humming bits of the famous scenes after we saw the trailer from lifestyle network. she’s a big fan of the opera, having loads of classical CDs in her small library! too bad we don’t get to watch shows as they are really pricey. hope we get a chance this time through your kindness! 😀

Live an Awesome Life,

Anton
