La Bohème at Tanglewood

“Kristine Opolais is a major soprano, in much demand on the international stage. Her voice, both powerful and plaintive… assured in the climactic moments, and touching for those times of gentle confession as the Puccini score inevitably blooms to some of opera’s most thrilling moments.
