Puccini’s masterpiece La Bohème comes to life in a free community event at Hurstville Entertainment Centre

18/09/2018

Georges River Council and Western Sydney Opera are proud to present a production of the Puccini masterpiece La Bohème for a one-night-only concert spectacular, free for the community on Friday 19 October.

Western Sydney Opera tenor, Lorenzo Rositano and international piano showman, Glenn Amer will be joined by a stellar cast of some of Australia's finest voices to present one of opera’s greatest stories of love at first sight.
With its well-known romantic and unforgettable melodious arias, Puccini’s masterpiece is still one of the most popular and performed operas worldwide.

Lorenzo Rositano is an Italian “lirico spinto” tenor. He completed his studies at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and holds a Masters in Opera. In 2013 and 2014 Lorenzo toured and undertook study in Italy through a John Brown Sport and Tourism Youth Foundation Scholarship. In 2010 he studied in the UK through a Big Brother Movement Scholarship.

Lorenzo has appeared as principal tenor in many opera and operetta roles and as a soloist in oratorio works and recitals in Australia and abroad. In 2006 he made headlines when he was selected by the Australian Olympic Committee to perform the Australian National Anthem at the Winter Olympic Games in Turin, Italy.

Since Lorenzo’s return to Australia from Italy at the end of 2014, he founded Western Sydney Opera, and continues to work as the organisation’s Artistic Director, with a mission of bringing opera more regularly to greater Sydney.
