Royal Opera Chorus & Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Andris Nelsons (conductor) & John Copley (director)
John Copley's enduring production of one of the most famously melodious and popular of all operas is a classic of the Royal Opera repertory. With historically accurate designs by Julia Trevelyan Oman and an excellent cast headed by Hibla Gerzmava and Teodor Ilincai, this 2009 revival, in which conductor Andris Nelsons makes a distinguished Royal Opera House debut, does full justice to Puccini's masterpiece. Filmed in High Definition and recorded in true surround sound.
"[Ilincai] gave a thoroughly assured and engaging performance. ... Sumptuously sung, Gerzmava's portrayal was sensitive and well-rounded – timid yet warm and attractive in her first scene with Rodolfo, intimate rather than melodramatic in her final death-bed moments." Classical Source
