Not being aficionados of the Opera, we were hesitant to get tickets. but after the showing, we were so happy that we had gone to see it. We loved it, and we plan to broaden our understanding of the opera by attending regularly.

Puccini's La Boheme is the most performed and popular opera of all times. This tragic love story set in the bohemian district in Paris. The arias are beautiful, breath-taking, emotional. I highly recommend. Also with satellite opera series you can go behind scenes and listen to interviews with the principles of performance. Also you can see the changing of the sets. La Boheme is considered one of the major productions at the Met with 3 levels of set changes.

This was a wonderful experience!! We loved the close ups with the camera and loved the in between acts activity behind the scenes and the interviews with the cast. Truly a great time the next best thing from being there. Can't wait to do it again!

Absolutely the most wonderful HD opera that I've seen this year. Vittorio Grigolo and his love, Mimi, were superb. Their voices & their arias will live in my memory for years.

It was very nice to have the opera experience wearing casual attire and sitting in comfortable seats. I had not been to see an opera in a very long time. I found the use of subtitles to capture all the nuiances of the opera quite enlightening since I dont speak italian. This was not available when I last went to see an opera.
