Segal productions at Oberoi
The Lanka Oberoi in it's endeavour to bring quality entertainment
to the Sri Lankan audience, brings forth Giacomo Puccini's "La
Boheme", and "Hurray for Hollywood" performed by
Opera and Concert Productions Worldwide of Britain, headed by Barbara
One of Puccini's
greatest Operas, "La Boheme" is a story set within the
artists' quarter of turn-of-the-century Paris. This powerful &
emotionally charged story of romance, sacrifice and tragedy is based
on the stormy and tragic love between Mimi, the ill-fated seamstress,
and Rodolfo, the penniless poet. However, Puccini's tragic tale
of doomed love is not without humour - the laddish antics of the
men, all of them starving as they try to make a precarious living
from their artistic talents, the hectic night life and amusement
of enjoying new found money... and somewhere among all this horseplay
the tender love story of the dying Mimi and her poet Rodolfo manages
to take root...
Opera is splendidly brought to life by the vibrant and extremely
talented cast. If you've never been to an opera before this could
well be the one that gets you hooked.

Fair Lady, Carousal, Annie Get Your Gun and many more all-time favourites.
Snazzy, jazzy numbers guaranteed to get the audience dancing in
the aisles and shouting for more.
The show has
been compiled, staged and choreographed by some of Britain's newest
and most exciting choreographers who are winners of numerous dance
and choreography awards. "Hurray for Hollywood" is fabulously
costumed and a great evening's entertainment.
