Husband and wife duo Joshua and Léa Bouillon will perform duets from popular operas in addition to solo arias at Bravo Nights. The free event, sponsored by the Opera Guild of Rochester, is Tuesday, November 12, 7 to 9 p.m. at the Little Theatre Café, 240 East Avenue, Rochester.

Bravo Nights are appreciated by both seasoned opera fans and newcomers who enjoy the casual atmosphere and the chance to see top local talent, free of charge.

Born in Biarritz, France, soprano Léa Bouillon began her early music studies at the Conservatoire de Caen in Normandy, and while a student there, met her husband, tenor Joshua Alain Bouillon who was visiting family in France.  She came to Rochester to study voice with Constance Fee at Roberts Wesleyan College and graduated with her Bachelor of Science degree in vocal performance in May of 2019.

In March of this year, Léa won first place in her division at the 2019 National Association of Teachers of Singing Eastern Regional Competition, which qualified her to compete at the national level.

Franco-American tenor, Joshua Alain Bouillon, is rapidly emerging as a diversified, in-demand singer. Mr. Bouillon is growing in reputation as a recitalist as well as in concert and on the opera stage. He is currently working as a professor of voice at Nazareth College in Rochester, NY. 

Léa and Joshua perform together regularly in concerts and recitals. In March of this year they performed arias and duets for WXXI’s introduction of the PBS series, Les Misérables at the Little Theatre.

Food and drink will be available for purchase at the café. For those wishing to dine at the café prior to the event, it is advised that you to arrive early and assure yourself a seat.
