The acting mayn't be the best, but the production is beautiful
18 July 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I adore the opera with all my heart. This production is beautiful, however I do prefer the 1988(with Freni and Pavarotti), 1982 and 1965 productions. The acting can be rather wooden here, excepting Madelyn Renee-Monti and Fiamma Izzo D'amico.

However, the sets and costumes are beautiful as is the video directing, the music is sublime particularly Che Glenida Manina, Si Mi Chiamano Mimi, O Soave Fanciulla, Quando M'en Vo, the act 3 quartet, In Un Coupe... and the heartbreaking ending, and the story is still as poignant as ever.

The orchestra and conducting are superb as well. While the acting is not the best, the singing is marvellous. Luciano Pavarotti is in excellent voice and while he has been better as Rodolfo I still think alongside Duke of Mantua it is one of his best roles. Madelyn Renee-Monti is a witty Musetta and Roberto Servile is good. The real star is 22-year old Fiamma Izzo D'amico as a touching Mimi, she is especially superb in the final act.

All in all, beautiful production. 8/10 Bethany Cox
