About the Event
Experience opera like never before in this astonishing performance of La Bohème by Puccini at Florence's remarkable Teatro Aurora.
When Rodolfo, a penniless poet, meets Mimì, a seamstress, they immediately fall in love. But their happiness is threatened when Rodolfo learns that Mimì is seriously ill.
Rodolfo is painfully aware that he cannot afford the medication and care that Mimì needs, so he separates from her. As her illness increases, Mimì returns to Rodolfo's attic. They are joyfully reunited — but despite the care of Rodolfo and his friends, Mimì dies.
Giacomo Puccini was an Italian opera composer of the late 19th century. He was considered one of the greatest composers of the Italian Opera, second only to Verdi. His early works were characterised by features of the traditional 19th century romantic Italian opera. Later, his style developed into the realistic verismo style, which inspired him to write his most famous masterpieces and became one of the leading exponents of the style. His most renowned works La bohème 1896, Tosca 1900, Madama Butterfly 1904, and Turandot 1924, all are popular operas played in the most prestigious venues of the classical world.
