La Boheme = FANTASTIC

The performance was fabulous. Cast, sets, everything. The last minute replacement soprano, due to the illness of the primary, proved to be outstanding. With only a very few hours notice, and little sleep, her performance was truly inspiring. Very glad I went.

LA BOHEME - The Met Live in HD

This broadcast of the The Met's Live in HD was LA BOHEME. It featured a production in use for more than 30 years. The singing was superb, especially by Vittorio Grigolo and the soprano, who was a last-minute replacement. It was historic in that it was the first time in the Met's history, that a principal singer filled in for the matinee after performing the lead in another opera the night before. She was remarkable. The Met orchestra was at the top of their game, as usual. Also fascinating was watching the behind-the-scenes interviews and the crew working their magic managing the elaborate sets. Thanks to The Met for these broadcasts.

La Boheme Live in HD

Outstanding production of one of the world's classic operas. Plus, the diva was a last-minute fill-in for the sick star -- and she was superb! Had sung a completely different role the night before, went to bed at 5 AM, and was awakened at 7 to be asked to step into the role. She couldn't have been better!

La Boheme

La Boheme is probably one of the most popular operas in the entire repertoire and can be enjoyed both by seasoned opera lovers and neophytes. This means that if you are at all curious about opera, this, together with Carmen or Rigoletto (especially the Vegas version at the Met) are operas you should try to aim for. The Met Boheme is a very serviceable version that has been shown for decades with different casts. This particular cast of young singers was very appropriate as the young bohemians. The main draw was, of course, the exciting young tenor Vittorio Grigolo. He gave a very individualistic performance which must have driven the conductor and orchestra wild but they did a phenomenal job just the same. The title role was supposed to have been Anita Hartig iwho phoned in sick at 7.30am and the MET turned to Christina Opalais who heroically accepted despite having sung Butterfly THE NIGHT BEFORE! She had just 2 hours sleep, but turned in a worthy performance nonetheless.
