- Bohème, La, opera in 4 scenes
Puccini: La Bohème [Sung in English]by David Parry
The singers have that first requisite of a good Boheme cast: they work as a team. Cynthia Haymon is a gentle Mimi, perfectly lovely in the middle register of her voice, just a little worn on top. Dennis O'Neill, rather as with his Turiddu in Cavalleria rusticana (8/98), provides a rare pleasure in this music, singing softly at the right moments (in the Quartet, for example); he also produces such a very good top C in his aria that he has no need to give us another at the end of the Act instead of obliging with the composer's harmonies... [T]he fellow Bohemians are capital, in voice as in spirits.
