WHAT HAPPENED TO THE MUFF ???

Just returned from opening night, 11/23, would have 5 stars but for the lost of the dramatic effect of the death scene: Mimi suppose to drop the muff, a dramatic indication of her death . This Mimi never lost the muff.

UNFORTUNATELY WE HAVE SEEN BETTER.

My husband and I are Puccini fans and love La Boheme and have seen it four or five times. Our seats in the gand tier were great. We were looking forward to the Met performance. But it surprised us by being such a huge venue. This made Boheme, a compact Opera, rather lost and voices literally disappeared. Some of the sets were too complex and they took ages to change especially when the machinary broke down. The 'pub scene' with Musette as the star turn was so lavish as to be ridiculous. There was a huge chorus, (and I mean huge) a pony and trap, a horse and cart and a full marching band. I kid you not. That, and the very long scene changes were rather irritating and took away the atmosphere from what is essentially a small scale intimate opera. We have seen better with the Welsh National Opera and indeed a small opera in Paris. All in all it was a disappointing experience from a premier venue, and we were not as emotionally drained at the end as we usually are

As a portrait of a displaced man unraveling, Mr. Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.

One of the most ferociously rewarding climaxes of my playgoing experience. That sensation, of a tension released by consummate storytelling, is what a theater lover lives for
