THE SCENE: OPERA San Antonio, the resident opera company of the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, concluded their fourth season with the production of Giacomo Puccini’s La Bohème. It’s easy to be captivated by the deep emotion embedded in the romantic storyline and the raw passion portrayed by the performers.

The subject and iconic arias have been an inspiration for countless works in pop culture, making it the perfect opera for newcomers who want to fall in love with the art, and also seasoned patrons who can’t stop falling in love with it. Seasoned opera singer Amanda Kingston played the role of ill-fated Mimi, alongside Derrek Stark portraying her beau, Rodolfo. The talented cast was led under the stage direction of internationally acclaimed and award-winning director E. Loren Meeker, as well as artistic direction provided by Adam Diegel.

THE VIBE: As San Antonio thrives and grows, it’s vital to continue cultivating a robust and diverse performing arts community. The production of La Bohème represents the kind of high-quality performance that OPERA San Antonio is committed to providing to the community.

THE CAUSE: OPERA San Antonio is designated as the only local resident opera company of the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts to produce and present world-class opera for San Antonio and South Texas. It strives to increase awareness of opera in the community through its year-round outreach to parents, educators, and K-12 students.
