Boheme is  great fit in Cleveland

By Donald Rosenberg 

"Tomer Zvulun's staging vividly conveys the work's amorous heat, playfulness and tragic desperation."

The Plain Dealer, April 20, 2008 


Opera Cleveland’s ‘La Bohème’ ‘wonderful’

By David Ritchey

"The cast gave director Tomer Zvulun opportunities to create the most physical “La Bohème” to come our way. The young, energetic cast romps, cavorts and plays.
Zvulun doesn’t permit the cast to become staid, old or to slip into classical opera poses. Zvulun’s direction brings life to an opera that too often seems as dead as Mimi...

I hope Zvulun is brought back to direct other operas…
