Iain Scott will analyse these famous scenes, look at different productions and directors’ versions while delighting you with special singers.
The ensemble scene at the Cafe Momus from La Boheme demonstrates what opera can do that no other art form can: presenting many different characters singing their own differing thoughts simultaneously and in beautiful, powerful harmony.
As the music builds to a climax, the ensemble soars into a stunning conclusion, expressing everybody’s different feelings in perfect harmony.
