Opera at the Movies
Saturday, September 12, 2015 | 7:00 p.m.
Fall in love with Cher and Nicholas Cage in the hilarious and sweepingly romantic Moonstruck! When unlucky-in-love Brooklyn bookkeeper Loretta meets her fiancé’s brother, Johnny, their instant chemistry sparks a comedy of operatic proportions—and a trip to the iconic Metropolitan Opera to see Puccini’s La Bohème. Cher and Massachusetts-born legend Olympia Dukakis both deliver sharp, witty performances that earned them Academy Awards.
Kick the evening off as one of BLO’s artists sings a live selection from La Bohème, then get swept away in this movie’s tale of love, family, and the unexpected magic of fate.
Tickets will go on sale soon. Please check back for more information!
The Somerville Theatre, in the heart of Davis Square, was built in 1914 and has been a home to vaudeville, theatre, music, and film ever since. The classical main theatre, featuring proscenium and balcony, also hosts live events and performances in addition to first-run movies, featuring notable names such as U2, Bruce Springsteen, Maya Angelou, Kevin Spacey, Phish, Norah Jones, Adele, Nelly Furtado, Ben Kingsley, Guster, and countless others. Live theater has taken the stage in recent history as well, such as the annual holiday burlesque extravaganza The Slutcracker. The Somerville Theatre continues doing what it set out to do since 1914 – provide the community with quality entertainment on stage and screen.
