La Boheme

This was in Cambridge at West Road.  Vignette productions.  Very young cast but all very good.  Rudolfo was a bit weak in the first half and struggling with the orchestra who were too loud.  They had set it in a modern post apocalyptic event which worked pretty well.  Although men in white suits came to take Mimi's body at the end which rather spoiled the pathos, I though.  Musetta, keri Fuge was particularly good.  They cut out big chunks of it so it came in well under 2 hours.  But thoroughly enjoyable
