01 the inseparable quartet 01 artists in Paris’s Ouartier Latin. Wonderlully inventive melodies such as Your Tiny Hand is Frozen and They Call Me Mimi are everywhere. Stepping in at short notice to replace Nuccia Focile (who, it is understood, has reneged on her contract to take up a better otter elsewhere) as Mimi, is Californian soprano Angelique Burzynski (see photo). Her last Mimi was opposite Placido Domingo at Los Angeles and this time round (when she will no doubt be a more likely consumption victim than her Scottish Opera predecessor), her Rudolto is Patrick Power, last seen with Scottish Opera as Count Almaviva in The Barber 01 Seville. Apart trom Angelique Burzynski, La Boheme’s Musetta and Marcello, Alison Hagley and Simon Keenlyside, are also making their Scottish Opera debuts. Kate Brown takes over as director and John Pryce-Jones, the company's Director at Music, conducts. Sung in Italian. (Carol Main)
