Fall Arts Preview
By Betsie Freeman / World-Herald staff writer
With Opera Omaha this year, you can take flight, witness some witty games of love and share heartache with a group of French Bohemians.
That classic story of love gone wrong — Giacomo Puccini’s “La Bohème” — will open the company’s 59th season on Nov. 4. Soprano Leah Partridge, a favorite with Omaha audiences, will sing the lead role of Mimi in that opera for the first time.
The season also includes Jonathan Dove’s “Flight,” a modern opera about travelers trapped overnight in an airport, which opens April 21, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s comedy about relationships, “Così Fan Tutte,” opening Feb. 10.
Partridge also will perform at the company’s annual Opera Outdoors concert in Turner Park on Sept. 9.
Orpheum Theater, 409 S. 16th St.
