FOLLOWING critically acclaimed productions of La Bohème and Lucia di Lammermoor, Opera Bohemia is returning to Dundee with their exciting new production of Puccini’s Madame Butterfly.
The company has enjoyed a very warm reception in Dundee over the last two years and is looking forward to their return to the Gardyne Theatre on Sunday, April 21.
Opera Bohemia was founded by Alistair Digges and Douglas Nairne, both young Scottish professional opera singers, who were keen to produce more operatic performances across Scotland and create more opportunities for professional artists in all areas of opera.
They also wanted to introduce opera to first time opera goers and a younger generation, in a fresh dynamic way.
Now in its third year, the company continues to add new works to its repertoire and expand its reach throughout the country. Their work has been recognised by Creative Scotland, who is supporting the company throughout their 2012/13 season.
John Wilkie’s production of Madame Butterfly is set in modern-day Japan and has already received a great reception from packed audiences in Glasgow, Edinburgh and Kirkcaldy.
Rising Scottish star, Catriona Clark, sings the role of the naïve Cio-Cio San, leading a cast of up and coming professional opera singers. This tale of love, sacrifice and heartbreak promises to be a memorable night for opera lovers and newcomers alike.
The performance begins at 7.30 p.m. and tickets, priced £12 (£10 concessions) are available from the box office on
