-The Italian tenor will take the role of Rodolfo in La Bohème for a José Cura production in Stockholm.
In February and March Andrea Carè will return to one of the roles that he has most recently added to his repertoire: that of Rodolfo, the male lead in one of the most popular operas of all time, La Bohème, by Giacomo Puccini. He will be singing at the same opera house where he made his debut in the role, the Royal Swedish Opera, where he also took the role of Radames in Aida (Verdi) at the end of last year, to great acclaim. Performances of La Bohème will take place on the 21st and 26th February and the 1st and 5th March. The production is directed by the Argentinian tenor and conductor José Cura, who has also designed the sets, the wardrobe and the lighting, and moved the setting from the original Paris to a fantasy version of Stockholm, where Rodolfo is now the playwright August Strindberg, the painter Marcello is Edvard Munch, the philosopher Colline is Søren Kierkegaard, the musician Schaunard is Edvard Grieg and the cabaret singer Musetta becomes Tulla Larsen. An important Puccini debut awaits Andrea Carè after his performances in Stockholm. He will take the role of Calaf in Turandot, an emblematic character, which the tenor from Turin will sing for the first time at La Fenice in Venice next May.
