An exciting young cast stars in Franco Zeffirelli’s production of The Met: Live in HD’s La Bohéme, presented at San Juan Community Theatre Sunday, April 13, at 2 p.m.

Italian star tenor Vittorio Grigolo makes his “Live in HD” debut as the passionate poet Rodolfo, and Romanian soprano Anita Hartig makes her highly anticipated Met debut as his fragile lover, Mimì.

Featuring a cast of hundreds, a glorious onstage snow scene, and detailed reconstruction of the Latin Quarter in Paris, the broadcast marks 15 million viewers for the Live in HD series, which now reaches 66 countries worldwide.

In addition to The Met: Live in HD presentations, SJCT also rebroadcasts National Theatre Live productions from Great Britain. Its partnership with both programs and the HD equipment to present them, was made possible by a generous bequest from the late Dodie Gann.

Tickets for La Bohéme: $20 adults ($18 SJCT members), $10 students; online at, or SJCT box office: 378-3210.
