HEARTLAND OPERA THEATRE: La bohème by Giacomo Puccini
Friday, Feb. 22, at 7 p.m., and Sunday, Feb. 24, at 2 p.m.
An all-time favorite opera for many people, La bohème is an opera in four acts, composed by Giacomo Puccini to an Italian libretto by Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa, based on Scènes de la vie de bohème
by Henri Murger. The world premiere performance of La bohème
was in Turin on Feb. 1, 1896 at the Teatro Regio, conducted by the young Arturo Toscanini; its U.S. premiere took place the following year, 1897, in Los Angeles. The story of love and loss is a classic, and the music of Giacomo Puccini is lush and inspiring.
