On June 7, 10, 13, 15, 20 & July 14, Sonya Yoncheva returns to Milan's Teatro alla Scala to star as Mimì in Puccini's beloved classic, La bohème. Her debut in the role at The Metropolitan Opera was praised for her "delicate, dreamy, detailed" portrayal (The New York Times). Opera-Online proclaimed that “It was one of these rare moments in opera when we get to see a thing of such beauty that we are allowed to forget everything.”
Ms. Yoncheva is joined by a stellar cast of Bohemians for this revival of Franco Zeffirelli's iconic staging at La Scala; Fabio Sartori is Rodolfo, Simone Piazzola is Marcello, and Federica Lombardi sings Musetta, and Evelino Pidò will conduct all performances. The cast and company are grateful to Rolex for their production support.
