Puccini’s unforgettable tale of love, youth, and tragic loss returns in Franco Zeffirelli’s classic production, perhaps his most beloved staging of all. Maria Agresta, Hei-Kyung Hong, Susanna Phillips, Ailyn Pérez, Bryan Hymel, and Quinn Kelsey are among the artists appearing as the young Parisian lovers in the bohemian setting that brings the Latin Quarter to life on the stage of the Met. Dan Ettinger conducts.
“[A] compelling cast... The chemistry on stage was a joy to watch... Bryan Hymel’s voice is wonderfully suited to the role of the romantic playwright Rodolfo... Maria Agresta sing[s] her Act III duets with Marcello and Rodolfo with gentle pleading, [giving] her dying lines in an aching whisper... Quinn Kelsey brought a richly colored, full-bodied, woolly voice to the role of Marcello.” —New York Classical Review
