La Bohème

Buy Tickets

Early in their careers, soprano Anna Netrebko and tenor Rolando Villazón were an unstoppable duo, performing to acclaim at opera houses around the world. At the Met, the pair only made a handful of appearances together, including in 2006, when they headlined a single performance of Puccini’s timeless tragedy La Bohème. In this radio broadcast, Netrebko stars as the fragile seamstress Mimì, alongside Villazón as Rodolfo, an idealistic bohemian poet. Plácido Domingo conducts a lively—and heartbreaking—performance, which also features soprano Anna Samuil and baritone Peter Coleman-Wright as the on-again-off-again couple Musetta and Marcello, bass-baritone Patrick Carfizzi as the musician Schaunard, bass-baritone John Relyea as the philosopher Colline, and legendary bass Paul Plishka doing double duty as Benoit and Alcindoro.
