Jessica Medoff reflects on her role in La Boheme

Leora Zeitlin

One of the most popular operas of all time, “La Boheme” takes us into the lives of a group of poor Paris artists in the 19th century, but for soprano Jessica Medoff, the characters are not so different from young artistic people today. “Puccini breathed his life into these people. They’re not just notes on a page; they’re humans,” she says in this interview with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin. The Las Cruces native is performing the role of Musetta in the  El Paso Opera’s production of La Boheme, and she came by the KRWG studios to talk about the struggles, passions and heartbreaks of these famous “bohemians.”
