Puccini’s La Bohème
As classic as opera gets: the most-performed work in Met history, in Franco Zeffirelli’s beloved staging, the most-performed production in Met history. An archetypal tragedy filled with gorgeous and deeply affecting music, Puccini’s timeless tale of love, camaraderie, jealousy, and loss in the garrets and cafés of bohemian Paris has reliably enchanted audiences and left them in tears since its 1896 premiere.
Sonya Yoncheva and Michael Fabiano star as the bohemian lovers in Puccini’s timeless classic. Marco Armiliato is on the podium, and Susanna Phillips, Lucas Meachem, Alexey Lavrov, and Matthew Rose round out the cast.
