"La Bohéme" - Giacomo Puccini

Giacomo Puccini (1858–1924) was immensely popular in his own lifetime, and his mature works remain staples in the repertory of most of the world’s opera companies. 

Lyrical and touchingly beautiful, the score of La Bohème exerts an immediate emotional pull.
 
The actions is set in Paris, circa 1830. The story centers on self-conscious youth at odds with mainstream society—a Bohemian ambience that is clearly recognizable in any modern urban center.
