La Bohème (Blu-ray) - Freni, Pavarotti

Luciano Pavarotti and Mirella Freni‘s incomparable partnership as Rodolfo and Mimi, the tragic lovers in Giacomo Puccini‘s much-loved bittersweet opera La Bohème, is captured for posterity in this 1988 live recording from the San Francisco Opera. Francesca Zambello‘s production boasts a superlative cast with Gino Quilico as Marcello, Nicolai Ghiaurov as Colline, Stephen Dickson as Schaunard and Sandra Pacetti as Musetta. The Italian conductor Tiziano Severini drew critical acclaim for his passionate and spontaneous reading of the score. This legendary performance was directed for video by a legend himself, Brian Large.

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.
