Puccini - La Bohème, Grange Park Opera

Susana Gaspar was a peach of a Mimì, lovable and sincere. “Mi chiamano Mimì” was tenderly phrased and perfectly weighted, especially the line “April’s first kiss is mine”. Mimì’s farewell to Rodolfo (“Donde lieta uscì al tuo grido”) was heartfelt. Gaspar is a fine lyric soprano and a sensitive actress. During Act III, when Mimì hides to overhear Rodolfo confiding in Marcello, your eye is constantly drawn to her reactions, especially the realisation that Mimì’s life is effectively over.
