Opera from the Inside: La Bohème 1

FM Opera

FM Opera Director David Hamilton talks with Stage Director Eric Gibson and Josh Kohl who plays Rodolfo.

For David Hamilton, this will be his last production as Director and he talks with Stage Director Eric Gibson about why La Bohème is one of his favorites. They discuss the staging and acting, and summarize the story. They are joined by Joshua Kohl, the performer who plays the male lead.

From the FM Opera website:

C'EST LA VIE. C'EST L'AMOUR. C'EST L'OPÉRA! A timeless story of love and loss. An audience favorite for over a century, this tale of six young Parisians who dedicate their life to art and love is guaranteed to touch your heart. Puccini's lush, romantic score perfectly captures the simple joys and heartbreaking sorrows of the idealistic young lovers. Their camaraderie, conviction and passions masterfully conveyed by an iconic score make La Bohème easy to love and impossible to forget!

This discussion is a project of FM Arts—a special radio series of profiles, performances, and discussions with artists and funded by The Arts Partnership with support from the cities of Fargo, Moorhead, and West Fargo.
