Composer Giacomo Puccini. Libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica Scène de la vie de bohème.

Opera in four pictures (1896)

recommended for 10 years and older

In Italian with English and German surtitles.

Heartache, heartbreak, the whole nine yards – four starving artists – love in a shabby attic loft – the swank boulevards where people live life with a capital "L", but Mimi is destined to die. Her tiny hand: ice cold! Otto Schenk's incredibly opulent, eternally valid production continues to fascinate audiences. All of Paris is magically transported onto the stage here.  So beautiful you could cry!
