Famous duets for men feature in the latest singing chat show from Unexpected Opera
Unexpected Opera offers a new way to experience opera. The company takes famous characters like Carmen or Don Giovanni and invites the audience, through the somewhat dubious interviewing technique of Brooklyn mobster Tony LaScala, to meet the people who sing them and incidentally discover a lot about the operas in which they appear.
The latest edition to the collection is The Boys from Bohème in which Tony LaScala interviews Rodolfo and Marcello from Puccini’s La Bohème, and gets the inside story on the troubled friendships in Bizet’s Pearlfishers and Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin. There will be favourite duets, unexpected revelations and opportunities for questions.
Unexpected Opera’s new singing chat show The Boys from Bohème takes place at St James’s Theatre, London on July 9.
