Better than rent, Great singing, of course., Epic, Exquisite, Ambitious

See it if You like spectacles. This opera is what the Met is all about--huge staging, amazing voices, a wonderful story. I go every year.

Don't see it if you hate opera (even if you never saw one)...Do not want two endless intermissions turning a 2 1/2 hour show into a 3 1/2 hour show.

Critic Reviews (1)

The New York Times
November 10th, 2021

"Critic's Pick!...Even in a good performance of this well-known staple, it’s hard for a conductor’s work to stand out against the singers’ voices, which usually claim our attention. But on Tuesday, when “Bohème” returned to the Metropolitan Opera — in Franco Zeffirelli’s enduringly popular production, and with an appealing cast in place — the star of the evening was the conductor, Eun Sun Kim, in her Met debut. Last month, Kim made history at the San Francisco Opera as the first woman music director of a major American opera company. And at the Met this week, she did the job with musicianly care, assured technical command, subtlety and imagination. It’s been a long time since I’ve heard Puccini’s score so freshly played."
