DETAILS

The Revue Cinema invites you to attend an unforgettable, unique evening blending the worlds of silent film and opera.

In 1896, Giacomo Puccini premiered his latest opera, La Boheme, based on Henri Murger’s book The Latin Quarter. In 1926, director King Vidor premiered a silent film adaptation inspired by Murger’s book and Puccini’s opera. On July 23, we present both works of art on stage and on screen.

Immediately following the screening of this silent masterpiece, an ensemble featuring mezzo-soprano Cassandra Warner and baritone Jeffrey Carl will present select pieces from Puccini’s opera.

Both film and stage performances will be accompanied on piano by the acclaimed William O’Meara.

This special event is co-presented by the Toronto Silent Film Festival and Silent Revue.
