La Boheme at the Detroit Opera House

La Boheme will be playing its final performances at the Detroit Opera House this weekend; I'll be in the audience with my family on Saturday night. I saw it for the first time in Nuremberg in 2006, but really I have been in love with the opera since Cher and Nicholas Cage watched it at the Met.

Cher does her walk of shame to "O soave fanciulla," the song in which Rodolfo professes his love to Mimi at the end of the first act (watch 8:08-9:06).

There are a lot of famous arias and duets in La Boheme, not the least of which is Musetta's Waltz. But Cher will only walk of shame to one of them.
