La Bohème at the Metropolitan Opera House

    What to Expect
    Treat yourself to a night at the opera with a performance of La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini.

    Part of the legendary Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, the Metropolitan Opera House is one of the best places on the planet to see an opera. The building seats 3,800 people and first opened in 1966 with a performance of Samuel Barber’s Antony and Cleopatra.

    This 4-act opera, La Bohème, first premiered in Turin in 1896 and has grown in popularity ever since with its story centered around young bohemians living in 1830s Paris. Franco Zeffirelli’s amazing production brings to life the tale of love and loss between the two main characters, Rodolfo and Mimì. The opera is sung in Italian, and the Met provides subtitles in English, German and Spanish on the back of each seat, so you can easily follow along.

    My wife and me attended La Boheme Thursday 11/14. It was a great venue. This was our first Opera. We had orchestra seats. It was difficult to read the subtitles and watch and listen at the same time. After the first act, I stopped reading the subtitle and just let the
