Giacomo Puccini

La bohème

A glimpse of the life of young parisians at the end of the nineteenth century, La bohème by Giacomo Puccini premiered at the Teatro Regio di Torino on February 1 1896, conducted by the 29-year-old Arturo Toscanini. Puccini looks at the last works of Verdi outlining a dramaturgically and musically very free structure, with a smooth succession of arias and recitatives that allows him to sketch a picture of profound realism of which the protagonists four young men are struggling against the inexorable fleetingness of time.

COMPOSER

Giacomo Puccini (1858-1924) can be considered as the last exponent of the great italian opera tradition; it imposes itself on the general public thanks to the intuition of the publisher Giulio Ricordi that sees in the composer from Lucca the genius in which to invest and enlisting two librettists Giuseppe Giacosa (1847-1906) and Luigi Illica (1857-1919). From this “dream team” opere such as La bohème, Tosca and Madama Butterfly are born, works that consecrate Puccini as the only heir to Verdi and that still today make millions of people rush to theaters all over the world.
