La Boheme on a Sydney rainy night

This is where I spent last rainy night. If you’re in  Sydney, don’t miss this show! The part where the set opens up to reveal a 1930’s Berlin Cabaret Hall was one of the best things I’ve seen at the Opera House. Stilt-walkers, children shouting for toys, half-naked prostitutes, glittering spangled costumes. It was all so decadent, wonderful, sleazy and beautiful. Very Sydney as well as being set in 1930’s Berlin. And the two lead singers, Takesha Mieshe Kizart as Mimi and Ji-Min Park as Rodolfo sang like angels.

    Oooh….I love La Boheme! O Soave Fanciulla is one of my favorite arias.
