Ailyn Pérez returns to the United States this November for her only operatic performances there this season. The American soprano brings her celebrated interpretation of Mimì, quickly becoming one of her signature roles, in Florida Grand Opera’s production of Puccini’s La bohème. The shows run November 17 through December 2 in Miami, and then December 6 and 8 in Fort Lauderdale. Describing Pérez’s recent Mimì in Cincinnati, the Cincinnati Enquirer wrote, “A radiant Ailyn Pérez displayed Mimì’s vulnerability, and the luster of her voice and depth of expression were assets from her first ‘Mi chiamano Mimì.’ In the end, her pure-toned recollection of their meeting was heartbreaking.” Mexican tenor Arturo Chacón-Cruz returns to the FGO stage to sing Rodolfo, a role he has made his signature and performed with Washington National Opera, Los Angeles Opera, Berlin State Opera, and other top companies.
Tickets are now available for all performances on the FGO website.
