Giacomo Puccini

LA BOHÈME

Opera in 4 acts

The plot of La bohème was borrowed from the popular French novel Scènes de la vie de bohème by Henri Murger. Puccini composed the music of La bohème in eight months. The world premiere of La bohème took place in Turin on 1 February 1896, conducted by twenty-eight-year-old Arturo Toscanini. Soon La bohème won stages worldwide.

La bohème is perhaps the most French in style and spirit Italian opera, characterized by surprising subtlety of emotions. The opera is set in the Latin Quarter of Paris on Christmas Eve. All the characters of the opera are young. These are beggar intellectuals: poet Rodolfo, painter Marcello, musician Schaunard and philosopher Colline. Need is a constant companion of their lives, but they do not lose heart and have fun even when they have nothing to pay to the landlord or to heat the fireplace. In the young people’s everyday life, there is a place for joy, poetry, friendship and love.

A casual encounter of Rodolfo and Mimi, a seamstress girl, living in the same house, awakens love in his heart. Mimi returns his love. However, happiness does not last long. Rodolfo and Mimi break up: she is consumed by tuberculosis and Rodolfo’s housing is damp and cold. The spring passes, and Mimi returns to Rodolfo, but her days are numbered. The world is arranged in such a way, that the most pure, gentle and defenseless is doomed to destruction.

Director Andrea Bernard will present a new stage version of Giacomo Puccini's opera La bohème. The spectacular two-level sets, a train entering the stage and other findings of the celebrated set designer Ezio Frigerio, as well as the Holiday Scene featuring professional circus artists, will make a familiar life story of young creators unrecognizable.
