Puccini’s immortal opera La Bohème is next in the 2014 series of live performances from New York’s Metropolitan Opera.
Directed by the legendary Franco Zefffirelli, La Bohème, the most-performed opera in Met history, is hosted by Joyce DiDonato with star tenor Vittorio Grigolo making his Captured Live in HD debut as the passionate poet Rodolfo. Romanian soprano Anita Hartig makes her highly anticipated Met debut as his fragile lover, Mimì. Susanna Phillips sings the flirtatious Musetta and Massimo Cavalletti is the painter Marcello in this performance, led by Italian conductor Stefano Ranzani.
Featuring a cast of hundreds, a glorious onstage snow scene, and a detailed reconstruction of the Latin Quarter in Paris, this broadcast (and delayed screening in Australia) marks 15 million viewers for the Live & Captured Live in HD series, which now reaches 66 countries worldwide.
