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.

The Met Opera Live in HD is absolutely wonderful. The grand scale of these productions is a treat to watch. We have truly enjoyed the operas we've seen and particularly La Boheme. With a cast of hundreds in crystal clear high definition, the Met Opera has shown us what it is all about. We will go to the HD opera whenever it is in our theater.

Marvelous HD simulcast of this opera. I had forgotten how beautiful Puccini's music is throughout. The part of Mimi, sung by the soprano who at just a few hours' notice had stepped into the part, was beautifully rendered, with the audience obviously in full support.

I enjoyed it thoroughly!
The entire cast was wonderful.......period!
The entre acte commentator, an opera singer whose name I cannot recall (sadly) was wonderful and knowledgeable!
The between act commentaries, discussions, "lapsed-time" demonstrations of the "Set" preparation.....superb!
This time, I experienced it at the Potomac Yards Theater in Alexandria, Virginia because the tickets at my preferred venue, Mazza Gallerie, Washington, DC, were sold out.
(Alas, the audience was a bit "too southern" for my taste.
I attended alone, and, during the "Pause" and Intermissions, my "seat Neigjbors" were uncommunicative, not responsive and cold.
In the future, I will strive to purchase tickets at my favorite venue in Washington, DC-
proper, where my friends and Neigjbors often attend are more amiable, pleasant and knowledgeable.

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.
