La bohème

Giacomo Puccini
La bohème
Lyric scenes in four acts
Libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica
From the novel Scènes de la vie de bohème by Henri Murger

with Italian and English surtitles

A second tribute to Puccini comes with the staging of La bohème (27 July, 2, 7 e 11 August) in the widely acclaimed production by Leo Muscato, awarded with the Premio Abbiati in 2012 by the Associazione Nazionale Critici Musicali in Italy. Valerio Galli, appreciated especially as a conductor of Puccini’s operas, will lead the orchestra. An outstanding cast will be on stage for La bohème: Mariangela Sicilia as Mimì, Yusif Eyvazov as Rodolfo, Mario Cassi as Marcello and Daniela Cappiello as Musetta. Puccini thought of this opera as enlivened by young characters, with a lot of emotional and social tensions that are greatly portrayed by Leo Muscato in his production set between the Sixties and Seventies of the Twentieth century in Paris, at a time of great turmoil.

Opera in four acts, libretto by Giuseppe Giacosa and Luigi Illica. It is inspired by the novel Scènes de la vie de bohème, written by Henri Murger. It was first performed at Teatro Regio in Torino, on 1 February 1896. It tells the story of a group of young friends living in Paris, torn between dreams of love and a harsh reality. Rodolfo and Mimì’s great love is shattered by poverty and sickness.
