If you'd like to hear the cast of Portland Opera's "La Boheme" close up, you'll have that chance on Thursday evening at 7 pm in a special concert at the Scottish Rite Center (709 SW 15th Ave.). The up-and-coming singers in the above photo will perform popular opera arias and ensemble pieces.
Tickets, priced at $50, can be purchased by contacting the Portland Opera Box Office at 503-241-1802 (Toll-free 866-739-6737).
BTW: Kaduce received a boost in the June 2009 edition of Opera News for her appearances with Florida Grand Opera and Opera Theatre Saint Louis. Here's the photo from Opera News:
