Joseph Lim, Andrea Silvestrelli, Joseph Calleja, Anna Netrebko, and Lucas Meachem in 'La Boheme.'

The Lyric Opera of Chicago's production of La Boheme, recorded earlier this year, has several draws. The celebrated Russian soprano Anna Netrebko makes her belated Lyric debut as the consumptive heroine, Mimi, singing opposite the Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja as her lover, the poet Rodolfo.

Baritone Lucas Meachem plays the temperamental Marcello, soprano Elizabeth Futral is the sassy Musetta, bass Andrea Silvestrelli is Colline and baritone Joseph Lim is Schaunard. Emmanuel Villaume conducts.
