Puccini: La bohème CD (Bertrand de Billy)

This recording of La bohème reunites Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazón in their first complete opera recording since their highly praised La traviata. 'The chemistry between them sizzled from the very first note', raved Die Welt's reviewer after the live Munich performances. Supporting them is an outstanding cast of young rising stars – led by Nicole Cabell's Musetta and Boaz Daniel's Marcello – and the vital, sympathetic conducting of noted opera specialst Bertrand de Billy.
