  • Giancarlo del Monaco's cinematic production of Puccini's popular masterpiece takes its place among the great interpretations of modern times. Jesús Lopez Cobos directs an outstanding cast, led by Inva Mula and Aquiles Machado as Mimi and Rodolfo, in a landmark recording filmed with high definition cameras and in true surround sound.


"Enormous, captivating, awesome… a complete show…" El Mundo

"The Madrid Symphony Orchestra played remarkably… and the cast, in its totality, showed a great level. Aquiles Machado gives his heart to the character…" El Pais

"…remarkable and solid set designing by Michael Scott, applicable only to a stage such as the Teatro Real's. The soprano Inva Mula succeeded in showing off her talent with a wide vocal register; brilliant and solid. Her diligence was as superb as the result, acclaimed for the audience. … Fabio Capitanucci brought to the Royal Theatre a vocally and physically powerful Marcelo. Del Monaco adds little details that are very well measured, which give a modern touch to the production which the audience appreciates." Filomusica
