The action in the Scenes de la vie de bohème by the Frenchman Henri Murger takes place in 1830. The stories were first published in a magazine but were dramatised and published in full in 1851. In 1896 Puccini and his librettists created one of the period’s successes with the opera version of La bohème.
In the first act we meet the writer Rodoldo and the painter Marcello, who share a cheap attic flat. It is winter in Paris. The seamstress Mimi, their new neighbbour, comes to ask for a match to light her candle. She and Rodolfo fall in love at first sight.
In the second act Marcello is together with his fiery old flame Musetta.
In the third act Rodolfo tells Marcello that he has left Mimi out of kindness. He believes that she is seriously ill and without him can find a wealthy suitor, who can pay for her treatment. Mimi overhears this without his knowledge. While Marcello and Musetta argue, Mimi and Rodolfo come together again, at least until the spring.
In the fourth act they have parted again but they all meet in the attic flat. Mimi is dying of tuberculosis. The Bohemians sell their possessions to pay for medicine, but Mimi die and Rodolfo is devastated.
In our abridged version of one of the world’s best known operas, the audience gets to meet the four main characters, Mimi, Rodolfo, Marcello and Marcello. The focus is on the relationship between these four and allows the audience to be better acquainted with this relationship
