LA BOHEME POSTPONED
Today, Annapolis Opera Company, in consultation with our partner, the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra, is saddened to inform our patrons and community that we are postponing the production of La bohème because of the impact that the current wave of Covid is having in our greater region.
As we worked to successfully overcome multiple Covid challenges, the production was greatly diminished to a point where it would no longer be the art the Opera wants to present, or the experience our patrons and artists deserve.
Moving this production yet again from the 2021 season, which was years in the making, is very difficult for us all. However, the leadership of the Annapolis Opera believes that the safety of the Opera cast and crew members, the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra members, and our patrons is paramount. Information on the dates for remounting this production in the future will be announced as soon as possible.
Though the full production has been postponed, a number of our guest artists will stream a special presentation featuring highlights from La bohème at the end of January. This presentation will be provided to all ticket holders.
If ticket holders do not wish to use their ticket for the streamed presentation, they can contact Maryland Hall at firstname.lastname@example.org to either:
- Donate the value of your ticket(s) to The Annapolis Opera and receive a tax receipt in the mail. Your donation will directly support The Annapolis Opera.
- Exchange ticket(s) to any event this season. From February 1, 2022 through April 30, 2022 you can exchange your tickets to another Annapolis Opera event.
- You must contact Maryland Hall at email@example.com during the exchange window to process your exchange. *Ticket prices vary. Exchanges may be subject to additional charges based on seating and performance choice.
Music by Giacomo Puccini | Libretto by Luigi Illica & Giuseppe Giacosa
Presented in Italian with English subtitles
They say love is all you need, but what if love is all you have? Witness the spark of love that brings light to darkness in Puccini’s beloved opera, La bohème.
On a freezing night in Paris, four struggling artists share unexpected good fortune and rush to the café to celebrate, but Rodolfo lags behind. His life is changed forever when Mimi, a seamstress seeking candlelight, knocks on his door. Puccini’s glorious music captures both the overwhelming rush of love at first sight, and the utter devastation of loss in the eyes of poverty and desperation.
The Annapolis Opera is committed to providing our patrons, staff, and performers the safest environment possible. To create a comfortable and safe space for all to enjoy performances, the Opera will require all patrons attending performances to be fully vaccinated and provide proof of full vaccination at the entry of all Opera events. This may be provided as a picture of your vaccination card on your cell phone or by showing your card at the check in desk prior to entry. Because the Opera is requiring a 100% vaccination policy for events and performances, all staff and performers are also required to meet these standards. Directional signs will assist patrons to locate the entry points for check in.
In addition, and in compliance with each venue’s COVID-19 policy, audience members are required to wear masks in all indoor spaces, regardless of their vaccination status.
Please note that if you do not have proof of vaccination, you will not be allowed to attend.
