On April 10th at 1:00pm enjoy an encore performance of Puccini's LaBoheme. New York Classical Review said this of the 2017 premiere: Puccini’s Parisian chestnut had a strong season premiere Monday night, opening the first of two Met runs this season. The story of the evening, no question, was the excellent company debut of Angel Blue as Mimì, a role that has served as a memorable introduction for many sopranos.
