The Met Opera’'s ‘La Bohème’.

The Met Opera's Summer Encore series presents La Bohème this Sunday at Palace Cineplex.

In one of the most dramatic saves in Live in HD history, soprano Kristine Opolais sang the role of Mimi with only a few hours notice in Franco Zeffirelli's breathtaking production of La Bohème, the most performed opera in Met history.

Featuring a cast of hundreds, a glorious onstage snow scene, and a detailed reconstruction of the Latin Quarter in Paris, La Bohème also stars Italian tenor Vittorio Grigolo as the passionate poet Rodolfo, Susanna Phillips as the flirtatious Musetta, and Massimo Cavalletti is the painter Marcello. Stefano Ranzani conducts.
