Boheme Opera NJ Marks Milestone Season

Alison Bolshoi

Now in its 35th season, Boheme Opera NJ is celebrating by bringing together stars of the company’s past and future for its 35th Anniversary Reunion Concert. The event is May 5 at 3 p.m. at Hillman Performance Hall on the Princeton Campus of Westminster Choir College.

“In 1989, Boheme Opera NJ realized the dream of bringing world-class opera to the regional stage. Thirty-five years later, we are thrilled to celebrate our milestone achievement with some of the outstanding artists who continue to make our mission a reality,” said Artistic Director Joseph Pucciatti.

Pianist Sandra M. Pucciatti, Boheme Opera’s managing director; and Doug Han, the company’s principal rehearsal pianist, will be the accompanists for the event’s vocal performers.

Among those performing are baritone Daniel Sutin, who made his Boheme Opera debut in 2000 as Baron Scarpia in Tosca, and whose international career has taken him to the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Royal Opera House Covent Garden and many more. Soprano Sungji Kim, who made her company premiere in 2008, has performed in Europe, Asia, Russia, Canada and throughout the United States. Contralto Alison Bolshoi first appeared with Boheme Opera in the company’s 2019 production of Aida.
