A makeover with a high star factor - La Boheme in Vienna
Kurier published this review today, following the opining night of La Boheme at Staatsoper Vienna, stating that Angela Gheorghiu's presence in this 403rd performance of Zeffirelli's production makes a clear difference and the staging seems suddenly fresh and very lively.
The reviewer was impressed by Angela's voice saying that her beautiful, clear, finely controlled, luminous soprano is simply ideal for this game; the lyrical moments and the delicate piano were also beautiful.
Very nice words about all the members of the cast. But it seems that the conductor didn't have his best night as he got the boos at the curtain call.
There are two more performances of La Boheme scheduled on December 7 and 11.
