The Light Opera of New Jersey returns to the stage with one of Puccini’s most beloved operas, La Bohème. The timeless story of love and loss of a struggling band of artists resonates with some of the finest music ever written for the stage. The production is directed by Andrea DelGiudice and is reimagined and transported to modern day New York City while using projected images. Jason Tramm leads the production which includes a chamber orchestra in the pit.
“We are delighted to welcome Light Opera of New Jersey back to the Mitchell and Ann Sieminski Theater for their performance of La Bohème. The depth of talent within their cast and the spectacular showmanship employed by LONJ brings exceptional theater to Somerset County,” said Brian Lawrence. , President and CEO, Fellowship Senior Living.
The main cast will include Molly Dunn, Mimì (Weiner Kammeropera); Frederick Schlick, Rodolfo (Tri-Cities Opera); Gina Hanzlik, Musetta (Michigan Opera Theater); Jason Detwiler, Marcello (San Diego Opera); Suchan Kim, Schaunard (New York Opera); and Ronald Campbell, Hill (Northern Virginia Opera).
“I am delighted to collaborate with these talented professional artists as we bring Puccini’s great masterpiece to life in a fresh and modern adaptation by our talented director, Andrea DelGiudice. We are delighted to take the stage for our first production since the pandemic and can’t wait to bring professional opera/operetta and musical theater to audiences in Basking Ridge and beyond!” said Maestro Tramm, renowned conductor and executive director of the Light Opera of New Jersey.
