Notes on the performancesOpen 
The impoverished yet warm-hearted artists of La bohème return once more to La Scala with their moving and hopeful duets of love, in the chilly Parisian garret where Mimì will die to savour again one last memory of happiness past.

Franco Zeffirelli’s staging of Puccini’s best-loved opera continues to generate surprise and rapturous applause. Touring the world since 1963, it is incontestably the most frequently performed production in the history of La Scala, under the batons of the greatest orchestral conductors.

Fresh from his La Scala debut in the 2009/2010 season in L’occasione fa il ladro, the young and talented Daniele Rustioni conducts a cast that includes two great voices, Anna Netrebko and Angela Gheorghiu, as Mimì. The role of Rodolfo is shared by Piotr Beczala and Vittorio Grigolo, with Fabio Capitanucci as Marcello.
