Bravo!!!
23 December 2015 | by rps-2See all my reviews

I discovered this production on You Tube while surfing. What a great find! I am an opera buff and Boheme is my number one favourite. (There is a disk of the last scene in ACT 1 filed with my will with instructions it be played at my funeral.) I have seen Boheme live and on video many times. I have countless productions on VHS, DVD, casettes and CD's. But I never have seen Netrebko in it. She is a SUPERB Mimi --- devious, flirty and coy. (A little too healthy looking for somebody dying of "consumption" but what the heck... this is opera...) Nicole Cabelle is a wonderfully unique Musetta. And they have captured the boisterous camaraderie of the students perfectly as well as the atmosphere of Paris in the early nineteenth century. I've always loved the Zeffirelli film of La Traviata. This is its equal!
