The Met Opera Encore in HD: La Bohème (Puccini)
Thursday, July 25, 2:00pm
A thrilling La Bohème … radiating warmth … luxury cast” (New York Times).
Puccini’s timeless masterpiece of love and loss features two casts of young stars. Sopranos Nicole Car (in her highly anticipated Met debut) and Ailyn Pérez share the role of the ill-fated Mimì, opposite tenors Vittorio Grigolo and Michael Fabiano as the ardent poet Rodolfo. After a celebrated Met debut as Mimì in 2017, Angel Blue returns as the spitfire Musetta, and Etienne Dupuis (in his Met debut) and Lucas Meachem share the role of Marcello.
James Gaffigan conducts.
La Bohème is an Italian opera in four acts. The opera tells the story of a love affair between a poor poet and an equally poor seamstress in 19th century Paris.
