Puccini: La bohème

ORCHESTRA E CORO DEL TEATRO ALLA SCALA DI MILANO
ANTONINO VOTTO

Callas never sang the role of Mimì on stage, but this did not prevent her recorded interpretation from being, as described by Philip Hope-Wallace in Gramophone, ‘brilliantly realised … This Mimì comes alive and later haunts you in the most extraordinary way … one of the most moving I have ever heard.’ Giuseppe di Stefano is an ardent Rodolfo and the young Anna Moffo makes a delectable Musetta.
