The Met Opera on WRTI: Puccini's LA BOHEME! April 5, 1 PM

Giacomo 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 Mimì in Franco Zeffirelli’s classic production, with Vittorio Grigolo in the role of her passionate lover, Rodolfo. Saturday, April 5, 1 to 4 pm.

WRTI's Jim Cotter speaks with soprano Anita Hartig.
