The legendary Robert Dornhelm directed this 2008 cinematization of Giacomo Puccini's seminal La Boheme - a film-opera starring Anna Netrebko, Rolando Villazon and George Von Bergen in the principal roles. This adaptation, like the original stage work, tells of the star-crossed love between writer Rodolfo (Villazon) and seamstress Mimi (Netrebko), who meet by chance one memorable Christmas Eve, and instantly fall in love - only to find that love ultimately ripped away by Mimi's fatal bout with tuberculosis. Florian Reichmann designed the sets.
