Callas never sang the role of Mimì on stage, but this did not prevent her recorded interpretation from being, as described by Philip Hope-Wallacein, Gramophone, “brilliantly realized.This Mimì comes alive and later haunts you in the most extraordinary way ... one of the most moving I have ever heard.”

Giuseppe di Stefano is an ardent Rodolfo and the young Anna Moffo makes a delectable Musetta.
 

History

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.
