Franco Zeffirelli’s classic take on Puccini’s most popular opera, the immortal tale of tragic young love, is set among the rooftops of bohemian Paris. The role of the fragile Mimì is shared by Angela Gheorghiu, Kristine Opolais, and Hei-Kyung Hong; the love-sick poet Rodolfo is sung by Bryan Hymel and Ramón Vargas; Riccardo Frizza conducts.
