To buy tickets:

As time went by, Leoncavallo’s La bohème has become “the other Bohème”, being overshadowed by Puccini’s. However, its 1897 premiere was more successful. Leoncavallo’s La bohème is full of twists and turns. It evokes Gay Paree and its artists, as friends gathered at memorable parties despite living in poverty, day in and day out. It’s a whole tragi-comic world that takes over the stage. An unfairly neglected work that’s worth discovering.

The 16th edition of the Montreal Vocal Arts Festival (ICAV) will host around 50 talented young singers from more than 10 countries who will amaze the audience by their performance while they perfect their craft under world-renowned teachers. This great celebration of singing, under the artistic direction of Joan Dornemann and Paul Nadler, will take place from July 22nd to August 9th, 2019.
