Shea Owens

"His vocal quality is stunning, with all the richness of a well-rounded baritone voice but with a striking brightness that thrills, particularly in his upper range."

La bohème

  • Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts 1551 Trap Rd Vienna, VA 22182 (map)

By Giaccomo Puccini
Performed at the Wolf Trap Filene Center with the National Symphony Orchestra

La bohème, the passionate, timeless, and indelible story of love among young artists in Paris, can stake its claim as the world’s most popular opera. It has a marvelous ability to make a powerful first impression and to reveal unsuspected treasures after dozens of hearings. At first glance, La bohème is the definitive depiction of the joys and sorrows of love and loss; on closer inspection, it reveals the deep emotional significance hidden in the trivial things—a bonnet, an old overcoat, a chance meeting with a neighbor—that make up our everyday lives.

Mr. Owens will perform the role of Schaunard. For tickets and more info, click here.
