Our New York associate Elizabeth Frayer has been given exclusive access to progress on a production of La Boheme that is being shot on the streets and subways of Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
(That’s Mimi waiting for the uptown, in case you were wondering.)
The producer is Alvaro Domingo, son of the opera legend, and the singers are mostly cast from winners and runners-up of his father’s Operalia competition. So, it’s all in the family.
But there is plenty of new narrative and contemporary music and the film is being scheduled for release some time next year. Read Elizabeth’s report here.
