OPERA / Breathless masterpiece: Nick Kimberley on Phyllida Lloyd's new production of Puccini's La Boheme in Leeds
Monday 19 April 1993
IT'S NOT uncommon in opera for everything to happen during the interval. In La Boheme, Puccini is so wrapped up in the antics of his young bloods that he scarcely leaves room for any plot at all. We see the bohemians revelling in make-believe poverty, rooking the landlord, fiddling the restaurant bill, wearing their art on their sleeves (and then burning it) - and with one cough Mimi has consumption and dies. For a would-be three- handkerchief job, it allows little time to build up a good head of tears. (And surely it's a stroke of folly to present the two show-stopping arias back-to- back in the very first act?)

John Inman was having a whale of a time. All morning he had been catching up with old chums, saying 'I'm free' to autograph hunters, chatting amiably to a man who had a toupee perched, like a nesting bird, on the top of his head. By lunchtime all the hurly-burly was beginning to take its toll on the star of Are You Being Served?
