The Bagaduce Music Lending Library and Friends of the Blue Hill Public Library will present a preview of Giacomo Puccini’s opera, La Boheme, at the Blue Hill Public Library.

Angel Blue, Anita Hartig, and Sonya Yoncheva (left) share the role of the fragile Mimì, with Dmytro Popov, Russell Thomas, and Michael Fabiano alternating as the poet Rodolfo. Alexander Soddy and Marco Armiliato share conducting duties.”
Local opera enthusiast Linda Lesko will summarize the plot, introduce the music and offer some ideas of special ways to enjoy the Saturday simulcast.
