Amman Opera Festival prepares for second round: Opera La Bohème
La Bohème is based on Henri Murger's novel, Scènes de la Vie de Bohème
The Amman Opera Festival will present performances of Opera La Boheme during its second round - set to be held in early autumn 2018.
The show will follow the successful inaugural round of the festival, which featured a successful performance of Verdi's La Traviata in July 2017. Amman's historic Roman Amphitheatre was brought to life by Jordanian soprano Zeina Barhoum, who took on the role of star-crossed lover Violetta.
Barhoum is the driving force behind the Amman Opera Festival, aided by support from the event’s patron, Princess Muna Al-Hussein.
La Bohème is based on Frenchman Henri Murger's novel, Scènes de la Vie de Bohème, a collection of vignettes portraying young bohemians living in the Latin Quarter of Paris in the 1840s.
