For the first time in its long history, the Salzburg Festival performs Puccini’s La Bohème in the Great Festival Hall.  Anna Netrebko wins acclaim yet again in the lead role, giving a “deeply melancholic reading of Mimi”, according to the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.  The promising Italian director Damiano Michieletto achieves a great Salzburg debut with his modern, anti-consumerist reinterpretation of Puccini’s gem. The striking staging gives a moving impression of the loneliness of characters in the Paris artistic world of today. 
 
Rodolfo, a penniless poet, meets Mimi, a seamstress and they fall passionately in love. But their happiness is threatened by Mimi’s severe illness. Rodolfo cannot afford her medicine and is pained to leaves Mimi. The two only reunites in Mimi’s final hours.
