This is Ms. Pérez’s 7th production of La bohème, and the third time she will sing in the famed Zeffirelli production at the Metropolitan Opera, having performed the role of Musetta, and Mimì in past seasons. She sings opposite Michael Fabiano as Rodolfo, while Lucas Meachem sings Marcello, Duncan Rock sings Schaunard, Angel Blue sing the role of Musetta, and James Gaffigan conducts. The show opens on November 29th, with subsequent performances on December 3rd, 6th, 10th, and 13th. Tickets and additional information can be found here.
