La Boheme will will prima with Opera Lyra Ottawa at the National Arts Centre venue on the evening of September 8th for a run of four performances. The American tenor who is globally ranking, Mr. Michael Fabiano, has been engaged to essay Rodolfo, with Miss Joyce El-Khoury as Mimi, Mr. Joshua Hopkins as Marcello, Miss Laura Whelan as Musetta, and Mr. Valerian Ruminski as Colline. Mr. Alexander Shelley is on the podium. COMMANDOpera has mailed Mr. Fabiano for the purpose of an exclusive interview in Ottawa, with a further interview perhaps with Miss El-Khoury shortly thereafter. There is a great deal of expectation surrounding this particular Boheme given the casting. COMMANDOpera is first to advise, Maestro Tyrone Patterson who is the Artistic Director of Opera Lyra, is one of the few minds globally, who knows precisely how to populate works with the correct vocal instrument available.
