Elizabeth Caballero Leads Fort Worth Opera’s ‘La Bohème’

By Francisco Salazar

Fort Worth Opera is set to perform Giacomo Puccini’s “La Bohème.”

The Fort Worth Opera production will be semi-staged, with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya. The vocal cast will include Elizabeth Caballero (soprano) as Mimì, Alok Kumar (tenor) as Rodolfo, Daniel Scofield (baritone) as Marcello, Meigui Zhang (soprano) as Musetta, Michael Colman (bass) as Schaunard and Kofi Hayford (bass) as Colline.

In a statement, General Director Angela Turner Wilson said, “With a nuanced plot, modern applicability, gorgeous period costumes and achingly lovely music, La Bohème truly has it all. People always think opera is one thing. Then they’re surprised when they get a chance to see it in person. It’s so much more like soap opera — people love and die, and it’s all terribly exciting.”

Fort Worth Opera’s “La Bohème” will be performed on Friday, April 5 and Sunday, April 7 at Bass Performance Hall in downtown Fort Worth.
