The Boston Lyric Opera's performance of La bohème this Sunday may be nearly sold out, but WGBH 89.7 has reserved the best seat in the house for you. Tune in on November 4 at 2pm as WGBH 89.7 takes you inside Boston's Shubert Theatre for a LIVE broadcast of Giacomo Puccini's passionate portrayal of young love and loss. It's Christmastime in Paris as this story of ill-fated love unfolds amid the carefree and reckless lifestyle of 19th Century bohemian Paris. Puccini's lush and romantic music is performed by a cast of enthralling young singers including soprano Alyson Cambridge as Mimi, tenor Derek Taylor as Rodolfo, soprano Kimwana Doner as Musetta, and baritone Andrew Garland as Marcello; Ari Pelto conducts. Don't miss this special presentation, as Puccini's beloved classic La bohème kicks off Boston Lyric Opera's 2007-2008 Season live on WGBH 89.7.For those of you that aren't within range of WGBH's FM signal, you can also listen online. Since this live broadcast is coming from Boston, remember that all times are for Eastern Standard Time (don't forget to turn your clocks back an hour on Saturday night if you're in Canada or the United States!).
