As classic as opera gets: the most-performed work in Met history, presented here in Franco Zeffirelli’s beloved staging, the Met's most-performed production. An archetypal tragedy filled with gorgeous and deeply affecting music, Puccini’s timeless tale of love, camaraderie, jealousy, and loss in the garrets and cafés of bohemian Paris has reliably enchanted audiences and left them in tears since its 1896 premiere.
