Opera in Williamsburg, the innovative opera company that performs two fully staged operas in Williamsburg each year, will open its doors on May 1, 2020, so Osher members can observe a working rehearsal. The singers will already have rehearsed the music and the staging before coming to the Kimball Theatre. This rehearsal will be a work session with piano accompaniment, no costumes and minimal props, with possible repetitions and backstage staff moving around. The opera will be Puccini's La Boheme, one of the most popular operas in the repertoire, sung in Italian with English supertitles. The finished production will be on May 8, 10, 13, and 15.
