Due to the ongoing pandemic, the German government has not allowed theaters to open for audiences, but Bayerische Staatsoper will be streaming its production of La Bohème, starring Ms. Willis-Sørensen as Mimì, on Monday, on November 30 at 20:15 on Staatsoper.tv, free of charge. She is joined by Jonas Kaufmann as Rodolfo, Mirjam Mesak as Musetta, Andrei Zhilikhovsky as Marcello, Sean Michael Plumb as Schaunard, and Tareq Nazmi as Colline. The beautiful Otto Schenk production was premiered in 1969, and retains its traditional beauty. Asher Fisch leads from the pit.
Ms. Willis-Sørensen is looking forward to the virtual performance and is thrilled that audience members worldwide will have the opportunity to spectate from the safety and comfort of their own homes. For behind-the-scenes moments, be sure to follow her on instagram.
