La Boheme (Episode #807H)

KQED Life: Mon, Jun 30, 2014 -- 7:00 PM

Puccini's moving story of young love is the most performed opera in Met history -- and with good reason. Anita Hartig stars as the frail Mimi, in Franco Zeffirelli's classic production, with Vittorio Grigolo as her passionate lover, Rodolfo.

Prince Igor (Episode #806H)

KQED Life: Sun, Jun 29, 2014 -- 8:00 PM

Borodin's defining Russian epic, famous for its Polovtsian Dances, comes to the Met for the first time in nearly 100 years. Dmitri Tcherniakov's new production is a psychological journey through the mind of its conflicted hero, with the founding of the Russian nation as the backdrop. Star bass-baritone Ildar Abdrazakov takes on the monumental title role, with Gianandrea Noseda conducting.
