Oscar-nominated director Robert Dornhelm lends the story a darker glow, with Bertrand de Billy’s soft-centred but warm conducting and two superb star performances. Villazón as Rodolfo, less… sings with a focused intensity which at time recalls Caruso, and makes a scruffily credible hero… Netrebko’s creamy-voiced Mimì is no naïve little seamstress; her scarlet satin and glamour-girl make-up suggests she’s been around… but her anguish in Act III is no less heartfelt. Dornhelm’s sombrely sumptuous images capture a credibly chilly, squalid, yet defiantly romantic milieu.
