Director: Robert Dorhelm
Cast: Anna Netrebko, Rolando Villazon
Tiny hands are frozen to perfection in Puccini’s tear-jerker of artists starving in bleak attics in l830s Paris … and poor Mimi once again coughs her way to heaven in the arms of her broken-hearted lover.
This is an excellent production of one of our fave operas, if not THE fave.
No matter how often we watch it we still find ourselves reaching for the tissues as the snow filters from an unfeeling sky.
Star Rating: 4/5
