Portland Opera La Boheme

La Boheme Portland OperaLast season, On Portland took part in the first ever Portland Opera Live Blogging Event for their season closer Rigoletto. This event combined the excitement of live opera with almost real time commentary from bloggers.

Portland Opera has decided to reprise this event with their season opener La Boheme (which the musical Rent is based on)

On Friday, September 25th starting around 6:30 pm, On Portland will be live blogging the opera.  We'll give you near real time look at the behind the scenes of the opera as well as comments on the production posted at each intermission.

If you're an opera patron or want to join us at the opera on the 25th, On Portland will be at a special live blogging table in the lobby along with several other local Portland blogs. So be sure to come by and say hi as you watch us furiously type our immediate thoughts, feelings and reactions to La Boheme. Then check back here to see if our thoughts match yours.

If you aren't able to attend the opera we invite you to visit our live blog of the event as it unfolds.  We never know what will end up in our live blog coverage but we can guarantee that you'll be getting the very raw and unfiltered view of one of Portland's most prominent performance companies.

Here are some interviews with some of the members of the La Boheme cast:
