Pacific Opera Project presents Puccini

Los Angeles opera company and grant recipient Pacific Opera Project presented “Tosca” in September 2014, and “La Boheme” in December 2014. Both were conducted and, in “La Boheme,” accompanied by, grant recipient Stephen Karr. “Tosca” featured a twenty-two person orchestra that moved, along with the audience, from scene to scene.

Stage and Cinema wrote: “Josh Shaw and Stephen Karr have once again put together a fantastic operatic production showcasing some of the finest vocal talent available at an extremely affordable price. Under Shaw’s creative direction . . ., La Bohème has been superbly brought to life in a setting that is faithful to the original, as well as intimately and creatively wrought.”

POP will present Mozart's “Abduction from the Seraglio” in Spring 2015.
