Opera for the iPhone generation
25 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is definitely not a production for traditionalists.

Rodolfo and Mimi have sex after finding her key, before joining the others at the Café Momus.

From the beginning, Mimi is dressed like a harlot -- in red, with plunging décolleté, large exposed breasts, and bright red lipstick.

The set colors in general are loud and bright, sets are incongruous, and the cinematography is grossly oversaturated in an almost cartoonish fashion.

It might fly with the iPhone generation and the sex-obsessed, but I'd bet Puccini is turning over in his grave.
