This is the magnificent 2009 recording of the Royal Opera’s production of Puccini’s famous opera, La Bohème.

The performances here are first-rate. Romanian, Teodor Ilincai’s voice, possessing a brilliant timbre soars with Italian lyricism; Russian soprano, Hibla Gerzmava is a vocally winning Mimi, singing with a lush warm tone; soprano, Inna Dukach (Musetta) delivers a passionate Quando M’en Vo and Gabriele Viviani is an engaging Marcello.

It is a refreshingly traditional production, which holds its own amidst a sea of re-imaginings and explodes with boisterous, youthful energy under Nelsons’s leadership hitting all the emotional high points.

 

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.
