BWW Reviews: Washington National Opera Crafts Gorgeous Production of Puccini's LA BOHÈME

..."It is also easy to get lost in the artistic design surrounding the performers. Costume Designer Jennifer Moeller blends the dark greys, purples, and browns in a spectacular way, capturing stark differences between those with money, those without, and those in service. They are cohesive, beautiful and appropriate.
Set Designer Lee Savage gives sweeping sets which change with fluid ease: a dingy artists loft, a glitzy Paris street half occupied by Café Momus and its lit sign, and the woods outside a tavern. These pieces combined with Lighting Designer Bruno Poet's exquisite use of shadows and contrast led the audience to applause several times."
