Puccini's most well known opera is performed here by a very experienced international cast in the Royal Opera's traditional production by John Copley. The four central characters are very well sung and acted. Cotrubas is a very affecting Mimi, matched by an ardent Schicoff as Rodolfo. Thomas Allen is marvellous as Marcello and Marilyn Zschau is a very sprited Musetta, producing a moving performance in Act 4. The sound and picture quality is excellent and the production works well - Act 2 is very well worked. A very good Boheme indeed!
