Description

La Bohème (CD) - Sung in German

This Berlin, 1960 performance of Giacomo Puccini’s La Bohème is a true collector’s item, in as much as it follows a practice little employed in the 21st c., but still in active if already declining use in the middle of the last century, that of singing an opera in a language other that in which it was written, that being German here rather than Italian. The casting however, is imposing by any contemporary standard, with Pilar Lorengar, Rita Streich, Sándor Kónya and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau in the lead roles. Albert Erede leads the Staatskapelle Dresden.

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.
