    Arthur Woodley sings Colline in Seattle Opera’s “La Bohème.” In his famous Coat Aria, “Vecchia zimarra,” Colline prepares to pawn his threadbare old coat in the hopes of getting some money to hire a doctor and buy medicine for Mimì. His farewell to the coat is sad but dignified: “Old coat, listen...I must stay on the plain while you ascend the sacred mountain. Receive my thanks. You never lowered your back before the rich and powerful. Your pockets, like tranquil caverns, have housed the great philosophers and poets. Now that those happy days have fled, I bid you farewell, my faithful friend.” Carlo Montanaro conducts the orchestra of Seattle Opera. Photo by Elise Bakketun.
