La Boeheme

I saw this on Sunday April 6, 2008, and after seeing many performances at the San Francisco Opera, this is a favorite...it was a great production... I like going to the movies for the opera, because the seats are more comfortable, being somewhat handicapped I can find easy parking, where I don't have to cross many streets, if it is warm you also have air condition which you don't have at the SF Opera House. Angela Georghiu was fantastic, as Mimi, and Ainhoa Arteta was wonderful as Musetta, I also liked Ramon Vargas...as well as the other singers and actors, and have seen Paul Plishka many times at the SF Opera in person.

What a Treat!

It was such a treat to get to see a Met production in Minnesota! While nothing equals attending an opera at the Met, sharing popcorn and getting the behind the scenes peeks shown at the movie theater broadcast had it's own unique charm! I will be doing this again!

Terrific showing from the Met Opera LIVE in HD! Ramon Vargas stole the performance from the sopranos! I actually cried with him at the end, not because of Mim's death, but because of his pain at her death. Vocally, he was incredible!!! All the men were wonderful! Musetta was also very good and portrayed her character very well. I did not care for Mimi's performance visually-her facial contortions were very distracting. Vocally, Mimi's performance got better as the opera progressed. I look forward to many more broadcasts from the Met, and I'll be there!

An absolutely gorgeous production!!! My only complaint was the theater had the sound turned up excruciatingly LOUD!
