Met Opera Live: La Boheme

Screening Dates:
Sat 24 February 5:30pm

Broadcast live from New York.

The world’s most popular opera returns with an exciting young cast in Franco Zeffirelli’s legendary production.

Poverty-stricken poet Rodolfo and his artist friends eke out a precarious existence in bohemian Paris, alternately practising their art, laughing, quarrelling, dodging the landlord, and living it up in their local cafe. When Rodolfo meets the delicate Mimì, the pair instantly fall in love. But Mimì is ill, Rodolfo is jealous, and their romance is doomed from the start.

Opera superstars Sonya Yoncheva and Michael Fabiano play the heart-breaking couple, singing two sublime Puccini favourites—Sì, mi chiamano Mimì and Che gelida manina. Zeffirelli’s stupendous onstage recreations of 19th-century Paris are sure to take your breath away.

While every effort is made to ensure the smooth transmission of Live broadcasts, this is dependent on a number of technical factors at both ends and climatic ones in between.
