The production recently wowed Russian critics at the Premier in Moscow on 4 Dec 2015
"The action takes place in 1940s Paris, with the atmosphere of a country still suffering from shock - and that's why the melodrama has such anguish, and the love of Rodolfo and Mimi, and Marcello and Musetta, is so passionate and emotional....marvellous choir and crowd scenes, with Santa Claus flying with balloons, and street musicians dressed like Napoleonic soldiers" - ROSSIYSKAYA GAZETTA
"All the cast sang well, but the four main characters comprised a quartet to decorate the most prestigious opera houses in the world." - NEW IZVESTIYA
“The graceful sets and imaginative lighting support the singing - which is very strong." - KULTURA
