About La Bohème
The world’s most popular opera returns in Franco Zeffirelli’s classic production. Sonya Yoncheva plays the role of the fragile Mimì, with Michael Fabiano as the poet Rodolfo.
With more than 1200 performances, La Bohème is the most frequently staged opera at the Met. The very first performances, on tour in Los Angeles in 1900, were among the most remarkable the work has had: at the conclusion of Act IV, soprano Nelli Melba—following her onstage death as Mimì—reappeared in front of the curtain to sing the mad scene from Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor. The role of Lucia was one of Melba’s specialties, and her portrayal helped secure that opera’s popularity.
Running time: 2 hours and 55 minutes. In Italian, with English subtitles.
Music by Giacomo Puccini. Conducted by Marco Armiliato.
