‘La bohème’ at the Bayerische Staatsoper

Matthew Polenzani stars as Rodolfo in Puccini’s ever-popular La bohème, this season at the Bayerische Staatsoper in a classic production by Otto Schenk. Performances take place November 19, 23 & 26 at the Nationaltheater, with a cast including Serena Farnocchia as Mimì, Kelebogile Besong as Musetta, Michael Nagy sings Marcello, and Nicolas Testé is Colline. Many seating areas are now completely sold-out for these dates – visit Staatsoper.de for current availability.

Mr. Polenzani debuted earlier this year at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona as Rodolfo, to tremendous acclaim: “The singing and acting were generally superb, especially Matthew Polenzani as Rodolfo, whose combined tenderness of action and voice reduced me to tears several times …” (Metropolitan – Barcelona)
