Netrebko, Calleja Shine in Lyric's Boheme

Anna Netrebko as Mimi, Joseph Calleja as Rodolfo,  Elizabeth Futral as Musetta -  you can't find a better cast for La Boheme today than the one we'll broadcast Saturday at noon from Lyric Opera of Chicago. Critic Lawrence Johnson praised  Netrebko's "gleaming vocalism, dramatic acuity, and personality-plus stage charisma," and found Calleja to be "on an equally inspired level."
