"La Bohème," 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 as her passionate lover, Rodolfo. Corporate sponsor is Atria Senior Living. Moffly Media is the media sponsor for the Quick Center's presentation of The Met: Live in HD.

What: The Met: Live in HD is a series of high definition opera transmissions of The Metropolitan Opera's new season direct from Lincoln Center's Metropolitan Opera House in New York City. With strategically placed cameras in front of, around and behind The Metropolitan Opera House stage, The Met: Live in HD transmissions give Quick Center audiences a state-of-the art opera experience and better-than-front-row-seat visibility.

When: 1 p.m. (live)* and 6 p.m. (encore), Saturday, April 5, 2014
