La Bohème by Giacomo Puccini ( Recording )
115 editions published between 1950 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 2,049 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The story of La bohème is the epitome of young starving artists whose lifestyles and escapades gave us the Bohemian genre. A notion of the poverty in which they are developing their artistic talents is evident from the very first scene as painter Marcello and poet Rodolfo try to keep warm by burning pages from Rodolfo's latest drama. Set in 1830s Paris, we follow the love between Mimi and Rodolfo as the young artists experience triumphs and tragedies

Sometimes everything clicks during a performance, and this Tosca is one of those rare moments. Three of the greatest singers in the world--Renata Tebaldi, Richard Tucker, and Leonard Warren--all in such spectacular voice, effortlessly convey every bit of Puccini's hair-raising drama. With Dimitri Mitropoulos bringing the orchestra and chorus into the same fever pitch as the singers, it's no wonder some operagoers say this Tosca is their standard for judging all others

With Renata Tebaldi wringing every bit of drama out of the title role, there are plenty of opportunities for goose bumps here. Add to that Carlo Bergonzi's glowing portrayal of the Enzo, the man she loves and the impassioned Fiorenza Cossotto as the woman he loves, plus one jealous husband (Bonaldo Giaiotti), and an Inquisition spy (Cornell MacNeil) bent on revenge, and you have operatic extravagance at its wonderful best, all set in romantic, mysterious 17th century Venice
