A fantastic production well worth seeing even if you have seen the opera many times. The voices are beautiful. The staging with the 3 wagons make the sets truly unbelievable. The costumes are great as is the acting. Even having seen the opera so many times and also playing in the orchestra many years ago the ending still almost brings me to tears.

Silent Opera

By jkcram
Written April 07, 2014
I think it would have been wonderful if we had been able to hear it. About 10 minutes into the performance, it became a silent opera. After 40 minutes a patron provided a cell phone so we listened via a cell phone. The sound was 27 seconds behind the singers so it was very distracting as well as pitful sound. Love the concept. Pretty sure that the technology is lagging as well. Not sure we would make this investment again.

La Boheme

This was the most beautiful production of La Boheme I have ever seen. Kristine Opolais was called to sing Mimi at 7:30 am, the morning of the performance, after having sung Butterfly the night before. She lit up the stage! And Vittorio Grigolo was fantastic as well -- we were in tears from Act III on. Just a beautiful beautiful performance!

PRAISES for the Met Opera….La Boheme

WHAT AN AFTERNOON! The joy of sitting back to relax and enjoy the perfectly exquisite portrayal of this splendid Opera of Puccini is indescribable. The voices were all superb; the lead MIMI did an incredible performance, considering she shifted roles from Madam Butterfly the evening before, and in a flash was a fill-in for this esteemed role. What fine dramatic portrayal and what marvelous music! It was a convincing and thrilling adventure. The opportunity, during intermission, to witness the back stage activity was also a real perk in being better able to connect with all that goes into making an opera come alive. It was so compelling! THANKS SO MUCH for making this available to those of us who are growing in the splendor of opera! I adore the entire work and performance. I am most grateful, and my soul has been stirred. THANKS, Judith B. Carlson judithb125@gmail.com

LaBoheme need no review. It has stood the test of time. Your theatre on the other hand did not prove to be worthy of the production. The sound was problem from the very beginning. What a shame.
