Niagara Falls has something to sing about!
Puccini's masterpiece "La Bohème" is coming to the stage at the Niagara Arts and Cultural Center at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21, and 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 23.
Organizers said, “This passionate, timeless and indelible story of love among young artists in Paris can stake its claim as the world’s most beautiful and popular opera ever written. Sung in Italian, the story follows the lives of artists who have chosen to take up residence in the Latin quarter of Paris.
“This is the first time such a large opera event has graced the stage at the former high school turned multi-arts center. However, the NACC has been preparing for it for years by celebrating International Opera Day each year with live concerts and performances by local singers. This year the two will be combined. The performance will feature not only the rich, vibrant and soaring voices of Jenna Washburn, Karen D’Angelo , James Judd, Brandon Mecklenburg, Kyle Botsford, Timothy Flynn and Stephen Edge, but also a live orchestra conducted by James Welsh.
“This performance is two days only and will raise money for the restoration of the historic building – and help the arts center continue its mission to bring arts and cultural experiences to the community.”
Tickets are now on available at Fortuna's Restaurant, Webster's Bistro and the NACC.
Each location is also offering diner specials and complimentary shuttle service to the event.
