San Francisco Opera to Present ‘Bohème Out of the Box’

By Francisco Salazar

San Francisco Opera is set to present “Bohème Out of the Box.”

The production will be performed in the Bay Area each weekend through April 2 and will first come to South San Francisco for three free performances at Orange Memorial Park on March 17, 18, and 19. Additional performances will follow in Los Gatos (March 24–26) and Dublin (March 31–April 2).

The first opera to be presented by San Francisco Opera 100 years ago, “La Bohème,” is Puccini’s popular work and will be performed in an intimate 75-minute version on a converted shipping container-turned-mobile opera stage.

Directed by Jose Maria Condemi, the cast will include San Francisco Opera’s young artists-in-residence, the Adler Fellows, and guest artists with keyboard accompaniment.

The free “Bohème Out of the Box” performances bring “La Bohème’s” powerful emotions and soaring music to Bay Area communities as part of the Company’s Centennial Season.
