The Metropolitan Opera's production of La Boheme, Puccini's masterpiece of emotional manipulation, is like any institution: it transcends the people, good or bad, who move through it

Why See Metropolitan Opera: La Boheme?

FRANCO ZEFFERELLI'S STUNNING PRODUCTION

Franco Zefferelli's spectacular production returns to the Met for the third time in 2017. Since its premiere in 1896, La Boheme has grown into one of the most beloved operas in the world, with only Puccini's other masterwork Madama Butterfly rivalling it for sheer popularity. This staging is split between two casts, and conducted by Alexander Soddy and Marco Armiliato.

WHAT IS LA BOHEME ABOUT?

A four-act tragedy, the story delves into 1830s Paris where a group of struggling artists live in destitute slum conditions, yet are determined to celebrate love in all its simple glory. When Rodolfo helps his pretty neighbour Mimi to find her keys in the dark, their hands touch, and attraction flares within them.

The story then moves on over the course of a few months, where Mimi is found to be terminally ill from consumption; despite having broken up, Rodolfo cares for her deeply, and is heartbroken to hear that she is dying. He carries her upstairs to his couch and caresses her, as she slips away in his arms.
