Minnesota Opera - 'La Bohème' cast interview

Friendship. Love. Anguish. This opera’s story begins and ends in a garret in Paris, as a group of friends and lovers find love and joy amid the hardship and struggle of a life in pursuit of art. It's Giacomo Puccini's La Bohème, and it's coming to the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts May 4 to 19. The production is the final offering of the Minnesota Opera's season. 

Soprano Melinda Whittington, who sings the role of Mimì in her Minnesota Opera and role debut, and baritone Joo Wan Kang, who sings Marcello, joined host Bonnie North in MPR’s Maud Moon Weyerhaeuser studio to talk about why La Bohème is so popular more than 100 years after its premiere. Listen to their conversation about this exciting production now!
