Teatro alla Scala
This is the magic of the Parisian Latin Quarter and Giacomo Puccini’s unmatched ability to capture love’s passion and hope. This is the story of Mimì who spends her days embroidering and her nights longing for springtime. Literally in search of light, a match for her only candle, she instead finds happiness and friendship with a band of young bohemians – a handsome poet, a philosopher, a painter, a musician, and a good-time girl. Briefly, Mimì and Rodolfo make a place of love for themselves, until poverty prevails. Based on the lives of bohemians, including Puccini himself, La bohème rings true. Sung in Italian with English supertitles. Run-time is approximately three hours.
