WHAT IT'S ABOUT:
“A tone, a rhythm, delightful repartee, voluptuous arias, an orchestra that sparkles and caresses the voices: these are a few of the brilliant devices employed with creativity and extraordinary precision by Puccini throughout La Bohème. The basis is a pleasant novel by Henry Murger. The end result is two hours of melodrama including some of the most beautiful and popular scenes of the Italian repertoire. The vibrancy and lyrical quality of Puccini’s work is combined with an acute sense of climax and an indulgent passion for beautiful voices. As for the orchestra, it proceeds with tiny brushstrokes and atmospheres and, in a language where the arias fit together with marvellous fluidity, sweeps the audience off its feet. The listener is caught in the wheels of this mechanism and then moved to tears by a drama based on real life and emotions.” - opera-online.com
ABOUT THE COMPOSER
Giacomo Puccini (1858–1924) was immensely popular in his own lifetime, and his mature works remain staples in the repertory of most of the world’s opera companies. His librettists for La Bohème, Giuseppe Giacosa (1847–1906) and Luigi Illica (1857–1919), also collaborated with him on his next two operas, Tosca and Madama Butterfly. Giacosa, a dramatist, was responsible for the stories and Illica, a poet, worked primarily on the words themselves.
