8 p.m. A week before actual Christmas Eve – on the 17th – GBS spends Christmas Eve in Paris with Rodolfo, Mimi, Marcello and Musetta, performing the concert version of La Boheme. The full GBS orchestra will be joined by the best-of-the-best of local youth musicians – members of the Greater Bridgeport Youth Orchestras (GBYO), who will play side-by-side with GBS professionals. Well over 100 musicians will take the stage, playing Puccini's familiar musical tale of starving artists in a garret, finding love on the streets of Paris on Christmas Eve. World-class soloists will sing the lead roles, and the evening will end with perennial holiday favorites.
