Notes & Reviews:

"This is the best that I've heard yet in Chandos's series of operas in English, good enough in fact to create a delemma. Does one review this alongside the standard Boheme recommendations, or does one treat it as a 'sui generis' release of interest to those who want their opera in English...If you want an English-language Boheme, you are unlikely to find better anywhere...this is for you." -Fogel, Fanfare

Penguin Guide
The magic mixture of humour and pathos in this unsinkable masterpiece is brought all the closer for having it in translation...Cynthia Haymon as a touching Mimi has never sounded more beautiful on disc, with the widest range of expression and tone...Highly recommended to all who enjoy opera in English.
