Very nicely done

Gorgeous. Staging is wonderful. The singing is heart felt. I watched it several times already. No stand out performers – but all the voices are lovely. Always makes me cry.
Opera at its finest
Beautifully staged, wonderfully cast (Rudolfo left a tad to be desired, yet nicely sung) while the orchestra performed Puccini’s finest work with zest and near perfection. This oprea is an opera lovers opera, yet the music is so lyrical, tender, bold; that any novice viewer will walk away from it humming any one of the arias.
franco Zeffarelli’s sets and beautifully sung and acted by very talented young artists
I always prefer a period setting and this production has it all. franco Zeffarelli’s sets and beautifully sung and acted by very talented young artists.
Not the movie the stage play
This is the stage play not the movie (Still freakin’ amazing but in case you were buying it for that just thought I’d say it).

Overall, a strong production. Hilba Gerzmava as Mimi, sung the role beautifully. She truly has a lovely voice, and her acting was very well done. Gabriele Vivani performed as Musetta exacly the way I envisioned the role to be played, with youth, energy and exuberance. The only thing she was missing was the fire of romance and emotion. Teodor Illinica has a remarkable tenor voice, however his acting was not quite up to the caliber of his voice. Inna Dukach also has a fantastic voice, but lacked a bit in his acting. The staging was well done.

Was a good performance ti view before I saw it locally on stage. One of my favorite operas. Sorry to always see her to die in the end.
Classic and timeless love story. Going to the SF Opera this weekend and I won’t be disappointed.
