On the centennial of the birth of Franco Zeffirelli, to whom the Museo Teatrale will dedicate an exhibition, Teatro alla Scala again proposes his classic production of La bohème, a piece of history of the theatre staged for the first time in 1963 with Karajan conducting and since then reprised regularly, now a vital element in the identity of Teatro alla Scala. Wielding the baton will be Eun Sum Kim, the youthful permanent conductor of the San Francisco Opera, while Marina Rebeka and Irina Lungu take turns as Mimì alongside Freddie De Tommaso as Rodolfo.
