Giacomo Puccini: La bohème
Greek National Opera |

 

The Suitcase Opera continues its journey around Greece with Giacomo Puccini’s legendary opera, La bohème and the support of Stavros Niarchos Foundation. Versatile but without discounting on quality, the Suitcase Opera travels to unexpected venues with the GNO’s cast of excellent singers, a piano instead of an orchestra and all of its sets packed into a suitcase with the purpose of meeting and charming new audiences.

The production’s director, Isidoros Sideris, notes: The Suitcase Opera presents La bohème in an alternative form, as a versatile and compact performance. Its aim is not to compete with the central stage of the GNO, but, rather, using simple media and the power of the music and our cast, to approach a new audience. In La bohème the intensity of the music is in constant dialogue with the fervent intensity and density of the performance. Humor and suspense are juxtaposed with the wonderful melodrama of the libretto and the music, creating a contemporary and direct show that is within the reach of all audiences.
