One of the most frequently performed operas today, Giacamo Puccini’s La Bohéme has inspired everything from pop songs, to short stories, to a Broadway musical in the 217 years since it first premiered in Turin, Italy. A timeless story of young friends finding love and struggling to make ends meet, La Bohéme is currently being perfomed by the Utah Lyric Opera, who have joined us in our studio to share with us some of their favorite selections.  Over the course of the episode, host Eric Glissmeyer has the chance to chat with Tony-Award-Winning musician Lisa Seegmiller, North Texas University’s Music Director of Opera Stephen Dubberly, Utah Lyric Opera Artistic Director Christopher Holmes, and Emmy-nominated writer Elizabeth Hansen who is the director of this production of La Bohéme.  Utah Lyric Opera is based in Utah Valley and introduces individuals of all ages to the beauty, literature, culture, and history of opera and musical theater.
