Bangkok--25 Dec--Total Quality PR

Make this Christmas Season in Bangkok a memorably romantic one with "La Boheme", the most popular opera in the world, in a stunning new version conducted by Trisdee na Patalung and directed by Somtow Sucharitkul on 23 December at 8pm, and 24 December at 4pm, Thailand Cultural Center, Main Hall.

As Rodolfo, Placido Domingo's star protege, Israel Lozano, a popular favorite in Thailand, returns after an eight-year absence, starring opposite Nancy Yuen, Southeast Asia's leading operatic diva, as Mimi. Thailand's own Barbara Zion appears as Mimi on December 24.

One of Thailand's most successful young singers, Nadlada Thamtanakom, a member of the national opera in Flanders, Belgium, returns to her native country to perform the coquettish role of Musetta. Falko Hoenisch, who was last seen here in "The Magic Flute", returns as Marcello. Damian Whiteley from the Zuerich Opera is back as Colline.

The Siam Philharmonic and Calliope Chamber Choir perform as well.

Since this opera first appeared it has become one of the best beloved works in the repertoire. The story of the lives of wild artists struggling to make a living in Paris, and going through love, death, tragedy and redemption, is a great way to introduce young people to grand opera as well.

In order to accommodate different audiences for the production, Opera Siam presents a gala night on 23 December at 8pm, and a family matinee at 4pm on 24 December. It is a"kid friendly" production but not recommended for children under 7.

Tickets are on sale through https://goo.gl/Gaw2Hs. VIP tickets admit you to a VIP reception on the upper level as well as to the opera itself.
