Notes & Reviews:
The incomparable Anna Netrebko follows Deutsche Grammophon's acclaimed, best-selling 2008 audio release of La Bohome.
Now you can watch Anna Netrebko perform Mimi - a role written for her acting and singing abilities.
This DVD/Blu-ray is a new production of the Puccini favorite, staged at Salzburg 2012.
Tenor Piotr Beczala rocks as Rodolfo, Mimi's lover. Massimo Cavalletti sings Rodolfo's friend Marcello with uncommon finesse and beauty of tone. Nino Machaidze is a moving Musetta.
The robust orchestration of this popular opera verges on the ethereal as Mimi's life slips away.
Throughout his reading conductor Daniele Gatti strikes the perfect balance between sentiment and sentimentality, vigor and fragility, the specter of untimely death and the quick and young it haunts.
The New York Times wrote, "You don't often hear Mimi sung with such vivid character and sheer charisma".Notes & Reviews:
