Hong Kong soprano Louise Kwong recently completed a run of two performances as the lead in Giacomo Puccini’s La Bohème at the Opera di Roma, marking her debut with one of Italy’s leading companies. According to a local review:

 

Kwong combines volume and an extremely pleasant timbre with a pleasant stage presence, and admirably gave body and voice to the romantic character of Mimì.

 

Kwong is due to sing Micaëla in George Bizet’s Carmen at Caracalla later in the summer.
