Anthony Minghella’s beautiful, atmospheric production of Puccini’s tragedy returns to cinemas this summer in a stunning performance recorded live from the Metropolitan Opera in 2009.

August 9 – La Bohéme

In this encore performance from 2018, soprano Sonya Yoncheva and tenor Michael Fabiano star as the young lovers Mimì and Rodolfo in Puccini’s timeless love story. Rounding out the cast are soprano Susanna Phillips, baritones Lucas Meachem and Alexey Lavrov, and bass Matthew Rose as the rambunctious gang of bohemian friends in Franco Zeffirelli’s classic staging, an audience favorite for more than 40 years. Marco Armiliato conducts.
August 16 – La Fille du Régiment

In this encore performance from 2008, madcap comedy and impeccable coloratura come together in Natalie Dessay’s indelible portrayal of the feisty tomboy Marie, raised by a regiment of French soldiers.
