La Boheme

La Bohème Apr 20, 2013 To May 03, 2013

Unforgettable music. Spectacular staging. Puccini makes opera come to life. See the master weave an ageless tale of love and friendship against all odds.

This is one of the most popular operas and a perfect one if you have been curious about opera - the music and staging are some of the best.

Bass Performance Hall. April 20 at 7:30 pm

To purchase Tickets:

http://www.fwopera.org/Performances/La-Boheme/

Upper Gallery has tickets as low as $25.  And Lower Gallery has tickets as low as $49.99.

Betty and I already have Mezzanine tickets on Row C, Seats 10 & 11 if anyone would like to sit near us.  We can all meet together in the main lobby by 7:00 and then perhaps go together for appetizers, coffee and dessert afterwards somewhere nearby.  I'll scope out some possible options before hand and post them.

Update:  4/18/2013

I'm getting excited about the performance!  I will be at the main staircase in the lobby by 6:45 to meet anyone and will plan on going inside to be seated by 7:05 - 7:10 at the latest.  If you miss us beforehand, we will meet at the Mezzanine Level near the bar to wait for Laurie and other cast memebers to come out.  I will have a short list of nearby places for drinks, appetizers, desserts and coffee from which we can choose based on a majority preference.  Please be sure to update your RSVP so that we know who to expect.  Looking forward to seeing everyone.   - Marian

    I really enjoyed the opera and sorry if I missed anyone as I searched for attendees before and after the shops and during intermission. I'll be sore to have a sign with me next time.

    Thanks Betty! It was great to see you again too. Did you cry at the end of La Boheme? It always makes me cry.

    I loved it! Especially that one of "our own" was in the performance! Kudos to Laurie!

    I had a fantastic time. So glad to see Betty again, and get to know Marian. Also, enjoyed going to Ferre afterwards.

    Sorry if I missed you at the staircase. Betty and I are seated on the mezzanine third row up in the middle. Well be at the mezzanine bar at intermission and at the end of the show. I'm in a black dress with chunky gold necklace and Betty is in brightly colored dress with red undertones.

    See you all after the show in the Mezzanine for drinks.

  • Marian

    Thanks, Laurie. I appreciate all the information and your willingness to share your discount. We're very close and I've posted an update above. Please be sure to change your RSVP if your plans change. I will already be in Fort Worth for the arts festival but if you are willing to drive and carpool with any folks, please post a comment. See you Saturday!

    Just rechecked my notes, I can share this discount with "any" of my friends who want to see me on stage, woo hoo. here we go. Purchase tickets for any performance at a 20% discount online with the coupon code ARTIST20 (maximum of two tickets per transaction) or by calling the Box Office at[masked] and letting the Customer Service Representative know that you are with the production.

    By the way, to receive the military discount you can be current or former military. Students may buy rush tickets before the performance too. You may also use my performers discount rate, if you message me...I'll give it to you, but I don't want to put it here.

    April 18, 2013

  • Marian

    Thank you for all the information, Laurie. Looking forward to meeting you and attending the performance. Let's plan on meeting up with Laurie and the other performers on the Mezzanine level after the show and then we can discuss possibilities afterwards!

    typo: should read one hour "before" the performance.

    If you are so inclined there is an opera preview before "La Boheme" where you'll learn the story, the juicy tales surrounding it, and get a sampling of the music. They are held in the McDavid Studio in the Maddox-Muse Center (the building just east of the Bass Hall - entrance on 5th Street between Calhoun and Jones) beginning one hour the performance and lasting 30-40 minutes.

    April 8, 2013

  • Laurie

    Remember that Military may receive a 50% discount on two tickets.

    I have confirmed that for after the opera you can meet the artists by joining them on the Mezzanine level after the performance in Bass Hall for a reception with the artists and staff. There is no charge.

    I "think" that following the opera one can go up to the mezzanine for drinks and to meet the singers. I will try to confirm that.
    However, if you want to walk to a place nearby for drinks afterwards, the ones I know of are Ferre, contemporary Italian-Tuscan; and the Flying Saucer which has a new location but is still within walking distance. Also, I've become a huge fan of "Brewed" on 801 Magnolia (2.2 miles south of the Bass). The Wooshed Smokehouse on 3201 Riverfront Dr. is a fun place too (3.5 miles southwest of the Bass). Both of the latter are open for drinks until midnight.

    or maybe not... it appears they CC payment system is down. I'll try again tomorrow

    If you have your ticket, adding your ticket info to your RSVP will help others determine where they might be able to sit near another Encore member. Laurie, where would be the best place for us to meet after and how long should we wait in order not to miss you? Do you also have a suggestion for an after opera drink or dessert?

    Sitting in Mezzanine, row C, seats 10 & 11

    I'll be there but I'll be on stage singing soprano in the chorus. You may be able to spot me in the crowd of scolding mothers or town women during acts 2 & e. I'll plan to try to find the group when the show is done, after I get out of costume. SO glad you all are coming. This is going to be a fabulous production of Puccini's beloved opera.

    • Sonia M.

      Will you be in all performances if I attend another night?

      March 30, 2013

    • Laurie

      Sonia, I'll be in all the La Boheme performances. I'll be reviewing/attending the other three operas: Glory Denied, Ariadne auf Naxos, and Daughter of the Regiment.

    March 22, 2013

  • Blake P.

    please remind me if you can by email or phone 1-7 days in advance of this engagement. That would be greatly appreciated!

  • Sonia M.

    Marian this is a tentative yes unfortunately. I work Sat & Sun only so I'll need to see if I can get the night off. I am dying to see La Boheme!
