NORTH CAROLINA OPERA

LA BOHÈME

Raleigh Memorial Auditorium

Friday, January 28, 2022

7:30 PM
Sunday, January 30, 2022

2:00 PM

North Carolina Opera presents a new production of LA BOHÈME, with sets designed by Steven Kemp. 
The idea of “bohemian life” – that of young people in the city, living their lives, and freed from any constraints of tradition, family, religion (or money!) – has bewitched audiences from the beginning. LA BOHÈME is the opera that won Puccini’s international reputation. His gifts of characterization, atmosphere, and dramatic pacing were ideally suited to this already-popular story of young love in Paris.  At the premiere in 1896 the critics didn’t care for it, but the voice of the public soon overwhelmed them. Whether it is the irresistible love of Mimì and Rodolfo, the good-natured quarrels of Marcello and Musetta, the witty repartee among the roommates, or the excitement of the Latin Quarter on Christmas Eve, every part of LA BOHÈME is a delight.

Harriet Tubman may be the best-known conductor of the Underground Railroad, but a new piece highlights another key figure: William Still, who helped nearly 800 enslaved African Americans escape to freedom in the years before the Civil War. Widely recognized for his efforts as an abolitionist, historian and conductor for the Underground Railroad, Still is the central figure of SANCTUARY ROAD, by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Paul Moravec.

BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY

Seabrook Auditorium, Fayetteville
March 12, 2022
7:30pm

Is this just fantasy or is the Fayetteville Symphony playing Queen? We are excited to bring you Bohemian Rhapsody, a concert that will feature masterpieces from Queen, Brahms, Dvorak, and Smetana. Brahms’ Hungarian Dance No. 5 and Dvorak’s Slavonic Dance Op. 72, No. 2 will have you tapping your feet along to the music, and Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody might have you singing along. The concert will conclude with Dvorak’s Cello Concerto featuring the Fayetteville Symphony’s own Nate Leyland as soloist. Dvorak’s Cello Concerto is one of the greatest concertos of all time, hi-lighting Dvorak’s gift for incorporating folk music into the richness of his orchestrations, juxtaposed against the rhapsodic lyricism and incredible expressive range of the cello. We can’t wait to see you for this very special performance!

EARSPACE

A REMINISCENCE SING.

7:30pm

Tailored to the unique space at Burning Coal Theatre, earspace performs Per Nørgård's Out of the Cradle Endlessly Rocking interspersed amidst works by modern innovators Kate Moore and Carolyn Chen and 20th-century master, Alberto Ginastera.

The highlight of the performance will be the newly-commissioned multimedia work se consume by Luis Fernando Amaya, a rising star of a composer and percussionist from Aguascalientes, México. The work is inspired by a viral video of a young boy in Mexico engaged in a rap battle who, instead of attacking his opponent, raps that “The world is being consumed by money…” Amaya says “this piece is an homage to MC Dinero, [the rapper in the viral video], and his very particular way of voicing the collective imaginary—even if inadvertently.” Carolina Vélez Muñiz is designing the video elements of the work.Carolina described herself as "a weaver, collager, dancer, creator processing her surroundings, family histories, traditions, and experiences. She plays with what scares her."
