Giacomo Puccini

La Bohéme


Videó bezárása

Some operas are legendary. None more so than Puccini's work telling the tale of young bohemians in Paris, in which one of the most beautiful romances in operatic literature begins with a burnt-out candle and a misplaced key.There are also legendary opera productions, such as this one directed by Kálmán Nádasdy. With Gusztáv Oláh's marvellous scenery, it is a genuine example of theatrical history that has remained on the Opera's programme calendar since 1937, with nearly 900 performances to date. Some things are timeless. This wonderful production is unquestionably one of them.

The critics respond:
“It’s difficult to believe that Kálmán Nádasdy’s production, Gusztáv Oláh’s sets and Tivadar Márk’s costumes are now more than 75 years old. (…) After the curtain went up on the third act, one could see a toll gate shrouded in mist, with a foreshortened wintry path surrounded by gas lamps and trees receding into the backdrop. Snowflakes cascade down from the catwalks.” (Harald Lacina, Der neue Merker)
