About the performance

The premiere took place at the Teatro Regio in Turin on the 1st of February 1896. It was conducted by the young Arturo Toscanini that evening. Its critical merit was far from obvious: critics scolded the opera for a “silly” and vulgar “non-operatic” plot. However, ordinary audiences fell in love with it: every premiere performance was sold out.

After the start in Turin, La Bohème won city after city: Buenos Aires – Rome – Moscow – London – Berlin – New York. In France, where it was given for the first time in June 1898 on the stage of the Opéra Comique, the opera created a genuine sensation. Claude Debussy, a master of the finest sound works, admitted that he knew “nobody who could have described Paris of the time better than Puccini did in La Bohème.

Premiered on July 24, 2018.

Presented with one interval.

Libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica based on Henry Murger’s novel Scenes de la Vie de Bohème

Synopsis

Scene I

A Garret

In an unheated garret Marcello, an artist, is working on his canvas “Crossing the Red Sea”. He has difficulty holding his brush because the cold has so cramped his fingers. His friend, the poet Rodolfo, enviously looks at the smoke emerging from the smokestacks of the well-heated Parisian houses. Marcello sadly muses over his flighty and unfaithful girl-friend Musetta. Rodolfo turns down Marcello’s offer to fire the stove with his unfinished “Red Sea” and decides to sacrifice the first act of his drama rather than break up the chair for this purpose.

Another friend, the philosopher Colline, returns with a bundle of books that he wanted to sell, but since this is Christmas eve the stores were closed. His bad mood is dispelled by the warmth of the heated stove.
