This production of BOHEME was broadcast some years ago. It starred the then almost unknown Rolando Villazon. I believe this was the year the production premiered.

Yes, I do remember that...was the soprano Kanyova? What did you think of the production?

Dmitry

Yes, Kanoyva was the Mimi. The performance was quite lovely, as I recall. I remember the production being quite moving. The updating worked, at least on television.

Philip

I think the updating was fine, especially because we weren't force-fed wacky bits of Eurotrash. It was simple and well-thought-out and most importantly: true to the essence of the work.
