John Copley's much-loved Royal Opera production of La bohème, starring Anna Netrebko as Mimì and Joseph Calleja as Rodolfo, was relayed live to cinemas around the world and BP Big Screens in the UK on 10 June 2015.
John Copley's production, now 41 years old and due to retire after the 2014/15 Season, was the first production to be shown on a Big Screen - Plácido Domingo's performance was live streamed to outdoor screens in 1987.
The relays, presented in cinemas by Kirsty Wark and on BP Big Screens by Dominic Peckham, featured a series of backstage films, including rehearsal footage and interviews with members of the cast and creative team.
If you missed the screening on the night, or just want to find out more about the production, here's another chance to see the films:
