Notes and Editorial Reviews

Also available on Blu-ray "The director Stefan Herheim creates productions that are larger than life: intellectually charged but joyously theatrical... Mr. Herheim deconstructs the traditional sets of the company’s previous production... Mimi dies of cancer at the start, and the opera is reconfigured as Rodolfo’s refusal to admit it. The production is a surreal, moving experience: sometimes mystifying but ultimately haunting." -- Zachary Woolfe, The New York Times [11/20/2012]
