The Met presents its spectacular Zeffirelli production with Ailyn Pérez as Mimi paired with Michael Fabiano as Rodolfo playing the young Parisian lovers at the center of the story. Susanna Phillips and Christian van Horn also star. Carlo Rizzi conducts. La Bohème is the passionate, timeless, and indelible story of love among young artists in Paris. Staking its claim as the world’s most popular opera, it has a marvelous ability to make a powerful first impression and to reveal unsuspected treasures after dozens of hearings. At first glance, La Bohème is the definitive depiction of the joys and sorrows of love and loss; on closer inspection, it reveals the deep emotional significance hidden in the trivial things—a bonnet, an old overcoat, a chance meeting with a neighbor—that make up our everyday lives.
