La Bohème (2 CD)
ARTIST: Antonio Pappano
Label: PRX/Warner Classics/Parlophone
Release Date: 05/04/18

Antonio Pappano feels that “No opera expresses the irrepressible energy of youth like La bohème … Puccini throws you into a fleeting world that everyone can relate to. He really shows us what falling in love is like.” Roberto Alagna’s Rodolfo meets Leontina Vaduva’s Mimì, while Thomas Hampson’s Marcello is reunited with the Musetta of Ruth Ann Swenson.

With the two other Parisian bohemians sung by Simon Keenlyside (Schaunard) and Samuel Ramey (Colline), this is indeed a recording to evoke the “nostalgia at the memory of wonderful moments” that Pappano finds so powerful in this evergreen opera.


One of the most popular operas of all time, Puccini’s La Bohème premiered at Turin’s Teatro Regino in 1896. The work, renowned for its beautiful arias and emotional intensity, opens in the Parisian garret of a group of young artists and writers. This is where the poet Rodolfo meets his neighbor Mimì, who knocks on the door and asks to borrow a candle. Thus begins a fateful – and unforgettable – relationship as the two struggle to sustain their love against the challenges of poverty, jealousy and physical decline.
