No opera can equal the passion, romance and tragedy of La Boheme. This perennial
favorite about love and loss that inspired Rent and many other contemporary shows is
surely one of Puccini’s most glorious works. A cast of internationally acclaimed guest
performers assembled from Maestro Wroe’s extensive contacts in European and
American opera houses joins NJFO to present, acted and in costume, this magnum
opus that will not leave a dry eye in the house.

The season concludes with two monumental masterpieces featuring Chinese choirs
from New York and New Jersey. Xian’s Yellow River Cantata, with its famous "Ode to
the Yellow River," is the undisputed champion of choral work in China, commemorating
the seismic revolutionary events of the country’s recent history. Symphony No. 9 with
the awe-inspiring "Ode to Joy" chorus also presents Beethoven at his most
revolutionary, most uplifting and most beloved. Musical solidarity, humanism and
heroism heralding from opposite ends of the earth.

Jackie Evancho's first performance on America's Got Talent in 2010 left audiences
astonished that such a perfect, beautiful, soprano voice could come from a 10-year-old girl.
Now a teenager, the best-selling classical crossover artist continues to impress and inspire,
whether performing Puccini or pop.
