great place to see this. angela g is a singer to be enjoyed on recordings, not on the screen. her mimi was a hybrid of carmen and norma desmond. the opera was obviously directed by a high school kid with no respect for what is utterly fundamental...continued

Description

Maestro Nicola Luisotti, San Francisco Opera’s music director and a master of the Italian repertoire, conducts Giacomo Puccini’s most beloved opera. This heartwarming story of starving artists falling in and out of love in 19th-century Paris is a seamless mix of romantic passion, poignant tragedy and high-spirited fun. The outstanding cast is headed by superstar Romanian soprano Angela Gheorghiu as the ill-fated Mimì. In behind-the-scenes clips, Luisotti talks about working in San Francisco and his vision as a conductor. Recorded in the fall of 2008 at the War Memorial Opera House in San Francisco. Sung in Italian with English subtitles. Running time: 123 min. One 15-minute intermission.
