Wordfest, 1221 2 Street Southwest
The AtG production that started it all, and uprooted opera from the opera house. Our modern adaptation and English translation of the Puccini classic shifts the tale of struggling artists to the present-day, and unfolds entirely inside your local.
This fall, we tour the fully-staged remount of our acclaimed, groundbreaking English “transladaptation” of the Puccini classic. Presenting to audiences from Banff to Toronto and the Yukon; including a run at the historic Tranzac Club.
The story is set in modern-day. We’re not at Café Momus, but at Wordfest: the most comforting bar in town. This is La Bohème. Experience it (with a beer in hand) for the first time.
