A ‘Boheme’ for All Ages

By FRED KIRSHNIT [NY Sun, 14 March 2006]
NewYork City Opera has a beautiful and dramatically sound production of “La Boheme” in service at present.The sets are realistic when appropriate, fanciful when being poetic. There is snow and a gorgeous moon. Also, there is a palpable sense of the role of the settings in the drama itself. And its astoundingly shocking prolepsis in Act II (I won’t reveal its specific coup de theatre) will send you out into the lobby in a cold sweat.
