Cowtown Opera presents La Bohème
Come see one of the classics of Opera, transported to modern Calgary and sung in English. It’s a funny, romantic and tragic story of couples navigating the world of relationships. The stellar cast includes Artistic Director Michelle Minke as Mimi and Cowtown mainstay Lauren Woods as Musetta.
On July 6th we surprised people around the city with our brand of Pop-Up Opera. Check out the video!
Thanks to our generous supporters for helping us make this a reality.
