Notes & Reviews:

Deutsche Grammophon is proud to present Franco Zeffirelli's iconic staging of 'La Boheme' as recorded live at the Metropolitan Opera on January 16, 1982, available once again on DVD. This timeless production continues to thrill audiences almost every season since it was first introduced in 1981, and this performance captures the production at the very beginning with the original cast. Teresa Stratas, renowned for her acting abilities, captures the essence of Mimi - her fragility, her resolve, her passion. Stratas is partnered by Jose Carreras as Rodolfo, the poet and love of her dreams. The cast is rounded out with a lively Renata Scotto and sonorous Richard Stilwell. James Levine conducts the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and Chorus, culminating with over 200 people on stage for the conclusion of Act 2.
