Metropolitan Opera: La Bohème

Apr 8, 2021

The 2020-21 Metropolitan Opera Radio Broadcast season continues with a treasure of the repertory, Puccini’s La Bohème.


This performance, recorded in the fall of 2017, saw the Met debut of the radiant American soprano Angel Blue and is being featured for the first time in a Saturday matinee broadcast.


Blue starred as the fragile but intensely passionate Mimì, opposite tenor Dmytro Popov as the poet Rodolfo. Soprano Brigitta Kele and baritone Lucas Meachem were the on-again, off-again couple Musetta and Marcello.


The cast also featured baritone Duncan Rock, bass David Soar, and bass Paul Plishka.


Alexander Soddy conducted the Met Orchestra and Chorus in Puccini’s enduring story of youthful love and loss.


La Bohème will be heard over the Toll Brothers-Metropolitan Opera International Radio Network at 12:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, April 10.
