In an attic apartment in the Latin Quarter of Paris, a group of young artists are living together in poverty. Their neighbour, the little seamstress Mimi, introduces herself, seeking a light for her candle, when Rodolfo is left alone. They fall in love. At the Café Momus Rodolfo presents Mimi to his friends, while the singer Musetta abandons her elderly rich lover Alcindoro in order to join Marcello. Alcindoro is left to settle the bill for all of them. Time has passed. Mimi has lived with Rodolfo, but they quarrel, because of his apparent jealousy. He has planned to leave her, as we learn in a scene set on a cold winter morning by the city gates. Musetta, a contrast in character to the gentle Mimi, later returns to the attic apartment of the four young men, bringing with her the dying Mimi, whom they now try to comfort, but in vain, as she dies before their eyes of the consumption that has racked her

Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk : opera in four acts by Dmitriĭ Dmitrievich Shostakovich( Visual )

5 editions published in 2006 in Russian and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shostakovich's subversive opera directed for stage by Martin Kušej for the composer's 100th birthday! Featuring the Dutch soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek in the title role, and making her long awaited debut at Der Nederlandse Opera! In Shostakovich's second opera, the tedium of everyday Russian life determines the fate of protagonist Katerina Ismailova. It is a work about the irrepressible nature of sexual urges, about erotic deeds of violence and liberation. Some of the scenes reached an unheard-of level of explicitness and were likely to have shocked the first audiences, but the work as a whole is an ode to love. The composer employs a polymorphic style with a wide variety of collage-like elements, but classical structures are clearly recognizable as well. The work's initial success was silenced by the publication of an official denunciation of the opera in the official Communist Party newspaper Pravda; this attack heralded a merciless, widespread and long-lasting idealistic clampdown on the Soviet music world. In 2006, Der Nederlandse Opera in Amsterdam programmed Shostakovich's Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the composer's birth. Mariss Jansons, chief conductor of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and one of the best-known conductors for Shostakovich's scores, made here his first appearance as guest conductor at DNO. This new production was directed for stage by the Austrian Martin Kušej, who belongs to the new generation of stage and opera directors, having made a name for himself at the Salzburger Festspiele and Staatstheater Stuttgart. While the divine soprano Eva-Maria Westbroek makes her debuts at the DNO as Katerina Lvovna Ismailova, the opera's veterans take the remaining lead roles: the Russian bass Anatoly Kotcherga (Boris Timofeyevich Ismailov), the Slovak tenor Ludovit Ludha (Zinovy Borisovich Ismailov) and the British tenor Christopher Ventris (Sergei)
