The local theatre company that’s bringing the rock musical Rent to the Capitol in the New Year is offering Nelson audiences a chance to hear music from the Italian opera the show was based on.

Elephant Mountain Music Theatre presents a concert performance of Giacomo Puccini‘s La Bohème — along with songs that celebrate the spirit of “La Vie Bohème” (the bohemian lifestyle) — on Wednesday, November 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the Capitol Theatre.

The concert will feature well-known local artists Julie Johnson-Murray, Christina Nolan, Kevin Armstrong, Josh Murray and Michael Calladine, as well as guest performers Isabelle Rozycki and Yves Thibault from Montreal, and Andrey Andreychik from Vancouver. This world-class cast of singers are sure to offer a night of vocal splendour not to be missed.
