San Francisco Opera has announced that it will be bringing back its “Bohème Out of the Box” this summer.

The company heads to Solano Avenue in Albany on June 27 for the first showcase of the 75-minute adaptation of the opera followed by another performance at Charles F. Kennedy Park in Union City on June 29. That same day, the Alder Fellows will perform “Out of the Box: Encore Concert.”

“Bohème” is directed by Jose Maria Condemi and features Caroline Corrales (Mimì), Christopher Oglesby (Rodolfo), Samuel Kidd (Marcello), Georgina Adams (Musetta), James McCarthy (Colline), Jongwon Han (Schaunard) and Philip Skinner (Benoit/Alcindoro), with pianists Julian Grabarek and Yang Lin, and narration by Michael Bragg.

“Bohème Out of the Box” was first presented in 2023 in South San Francisco, Los Gatos, and Dublin with performances in Burlingame, Alameda, and other venues taking place earlier this year.
