The Splendor of Opera Returns to Bravo! Vail

June 3, 2024

The Bravo! Vail Music Festival is the place to seek cultural highlights in the Vail Valley. A majority of the Bravo! Vail performances are held at the beautiful and unique Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater, where audience members experience musical delights and innovative performances year after year. The 2024 summer season runs from June 20 through August 1. This year, Bravo! Vail has set out to captivate opera aficionados and newcomers alike, as they present Giacomo Puccini’s timeless masterpiece, La bohème, backed by the Philadelphia Orchestra. With performances scheduled for Wednesday, July 10 and Friday, July 12, 2024, this production signals the return of opera to Bravo! Vail after a hiatus since 2019.

Eli Monroe, director of artistic operations at Bravo! Vail, sheds light on the meticulous planning that has gone into crafting this production. “The response to our Tosca production in 2019 was really overwhelming. So many people said they had never heard an opera before and were already asking when we would do another one,” Monroe shares. Operas are difficult to plan, and the COVID-19 pandemic made producing one in Vail even more difficult. After five years, Bravo! Vail is welcoming the production of La bohème, a love story between a poet and seamstress set in 19th-century Paris.
