As much as I respect Callas (I come, after all, from Greece) it's hard to deny that Callas did not have the warm, gentle, beautiful voice that the role demands. The famous first act aria is treated roughly as is the rest of the opera. It is proved here that acting abilities are sometimes not enough. However Callas, is partnered with wonderful artists: the velvety voice of di Stefano and a beautiful Musetta; Anna Moffo. Therefore, I recommend this Boheme only to Callas fans. To me, in stead of Boheme Callas should have recorded Macbeth or Anna Bolena. If one really wants to experience Boheme, he should own the Serafin (Tebaldi/Bergonzi) or the Beecham (De los Angeles/Bjoerling) set.

Callas and De Stefano sing with clarity and fire and feeling. Tebaldi sings, and that is all. Other recordings have thier merits, the Te Kanawa version is an unexpected pleasure(Erato), and the newest Alagna/Gheorghiu set is of interest(EMI). For the older sets, De Los Angeles and Bjorling are good (EMI), but Callas is best. Don't be fooled; she could sing anything.

I first heard La Boheme in the norwegian opera with Virgina Tola as mimi, i hated it! But then i came over this version with Callas, and i love it!
Sure its not what u expect from Maria Callas, but she does a fantastic job singing the role as Mimi. The rest of the cast is also very good! And the conducting too! A great buy!
