Franco Zeffirelli’s classic take on Puccini’s most popular opera, the immortal tale of tragic young love, is set among the rooftops of bohemian Paris. The role of the fragile Mimì is shared by Sonya Yoncheva, Angela Gheorghiu, and Kristine Opolais, with Francesco Demuro, Michael Fabiano, and Jean-François Borras as the love-sick poet Rodolfo. Riccardo Frizza conducts.

 Sonya Yoncheva as Mimì "is the real deal... Her first-act aria built to a gently riveting reverie, and she grew in tragic stature as the opera went on... Subtle, thoughtful and heart-rending, [her Act III "Addio"] seemed like the work of a veteran artist. But astonishingly, this was Ms. Yoncheva's first staged performance of the role. Her delicate, dreamy, detailed Mimì has arrived more or less fully formed..." (New York Times)

Richard Eyre's season-opening new production of Mozart's eternal masterpiece is set in an 18th-century manor house in Seville during the 1930s. Erwin Schrott in the title role leads a stellar cast that also includes Mariusz Kwiecien as the Count and Danielle de Niese as Susanna, along with Met debutantes Rachel Willis-Sørensen as the Countess and Serena Malfi as Cherubino. Edo de Waart conducts.
"A sparkling new production... joyful music-making... A memorable performance of Mozart's immortal comedy." (Associated Press)
"A swiftly paced, playful evening... Eyre skillfully built the comic ensembles to climaxes that made you laugh out loud... A happy Marriage at the Met." (Wall Street Journal)
"A ravishing, intricately wrought evening of music, humor and emotional depth... An evening like this is the strongest argument for the continued vigor of the Met." (New York Magazine)
