The massive sets, dramatic lighting, scene-setting oriental choreography and glorious costumes offer a sumptuous visual treat. Just add Puccini's wonderfully emotional music and some exceptionally fine singing, and it adds up to a wholly satisfying experience." (The Daily Express - Turandot) "In every sense this Bohme glows. John Copley's legendary staging with sets by Julia Trevelyan Oman, first seen in 1972, is renowned for its authenticity and detail, both architectural and human. Full of telling little touches - the artist Marcello's Act II girlfriend is his Act IV model - they bring 19th-century Paris's bustle alive as effectively as any BBC classic...This latest incarnation, betraying no trace of staleness, has no such stellar names - yet! -except perhaps Andris Nelsons, boisterous where precursor Lamberto Gardelli was nostalgic. Instead it offers a vibrant new ensemble, improbably youthful and good-looking...On DVD it looks and sounds wonderful - but on Blu-Ray it's breathtaking. 1982 is a memorable vintage, but La bohme nouvelle est arrive - a new recommendation.
