La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini @ DUCTAC, Mall of the Emirates on December 4 2014

The Italian Embassy to the UAE and the Italian Industry & Commerce Office in the UAE are proud to present La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini, an italian opera concert featuring the internationally prominent singers Soprano Monica De Rosa McKay, Tenor Gian Luca Pasolini, Baritone Giuseppe Altomare, Soprano Julia Teal Kermott, Bass Luca Gallo accompanied by the pianist-conductor Piero Corradino Giovannini, narrated by Claudia Barbieri Di Maggio and directed by Della Del Cherico.

La bohème is an opera in four acts, composed by Giacomo Puccini to an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa, based on Scènes de la vie de bohème by Henri Murger. The world premiere performance of La bohème was in Turin on 1 February 1896 at the Teatro Regio, conducted by the young Arturo Toscanini. Since then, La bohème has become part of the standard Italian opera repertory and is one of the most frequently performed operas worldwide. In 1946, fifty years after the opera’s premiere, Toscanini conducted a performance of it on radio with the NBC Symphony Orchestra. This performance was eventually released on records and on Compact Disc. It is the only recording of a Puccini opera by its original conductor.
