Rising Alternative and Emerging Pictures have announced the UK screening of Giacomo Puccini’s youthful masterpiece La Bohème live from one of the world’s greatest opera houses Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu on March 13. Rising Alternative president Giovanni Cozzi says “Rising Alternative prides itself on releasing world class opera in HD and it doesn’t get much better than La Bohème from Gran Teatro del Liceu.” He says that 400 cinemas worldwide will be releasing the title live on March 13. Starring the Italian operatic sensation Fiorenza Cedolins as Mimí and the distinguished Mexican tenor Ramón Vargas as Rodolfo with a lavish period production directed by Giancarlo del Monaco (son of the legendary tenor Mario del Monaco) La Bohème live at the Liceu with experienced Spanish conductor Victor Pablo Pérez promises to transport the cinema-goer to a nostalgic musical world filled with poetry lyricism and true love set against the excitement and melancholy of nineteenth-century Paris seen through bohemian eyes.
