Tragic Love Story

In the 50's, in Paris, the neighbors Rodolfo (David Hobson) and Mimi (Cheryl Barker) meet each other when Mimi's candle blows out in a cold and dark night. They immediately fall in love for each other, in times of financial difficulties in the post-war. Rodolfo introduces Mimi to his close friends Marcello (Roger Lemke) and his beloved Musetta (Christine Douglas); Colline (Gary Rowley); and Schaunard (David Lemke) and together they have a good-time in Café Momus. Some time later, Mimi tells Marcello that she can not support the jealousy of Rodolfo any longer and when Marcello discuss with Rodolfo, Mimi overhears the real reason for the behavior of her beloved Rodolfo.

This is the first time I see "La Bohème", inclusive my greatest interest is to compare the Australian version on DVD with the version that will be played in Teatro Municipal next Friday in Rio de Janeiro. Baz Luhrmann's adaptation is a modern love story that recalls a musical instead of a conventional opera, and has excellent interpretations, highlighting David Hobson, Cheryl Barker, Roger Lemke and Christine Douglas in the lead roles. The camera is excellent, considering that it is a live presentation, inclusive with great closes. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "La Bohème"
