Not-To-Be-Missed!" -Bernard Jacobson, The Seattle Times
As Seattle Opera's "wildly romantic" (City Arts) production of La Bohème heads into its final week, praise from critics and audiences continues:"To Die For - Seattle Opera's production feels like coming home. Even if you've never seen Bohème before, you'll feel warm, welcome, and aware of life's fragile beauty afterward." -The SunBreak
"An ideal gateway opera for the uninitiated. A familiar, wildly romantic story centerered on the thrill of living. .. The production seizes the spirt of this story with intoxicating grandeur." -CityArts
"By far the best Bohème I've seen, it was perfect." -Katie Castro, via Facebook
"A perfect La Bohème! Singing, orchestra, conducting, lighting, staging, all these elements in balance, you had it all." -Tim Hendrickson, via Facebook
"La Bohème was stunning. If you like Rent see the opera that inspired it" -MissAngela, via Twitter
I have not seen Rent and I didn't know the "La Boheme" connection. I guess Cher and Nicolas Cage's characters went to see "La Boheme" in the movie "Moonstruck" which is one of my favorite films. I'll have to watch "Moonstruck" again now (I have it on DVD).
I feel very lucky that we went to see 2 operas this year - "La Boheme" and "Cinderella." Both were very special and meant a lot to me.
