Puccini’s La Bohème is one of the world’s most frequently performed operas. It was written in the 189s by an impoverished Giacomo Puccini, who was living a Bohemian lifestyle in a cabin by a lake in Italy. It catapulted Puccini to fame and fortune as an opera composer. The timeless story has been reproduced many times and in many forms.

This talk includes examples of various ways the story and the music have been adapted and used in film and on Broadway. It includes samples from a 1906 recording of an aria by Enrico Caruso, scenes from productions at San Francisco Opera (1988 featuring Pavarotti and Freni) and LA Opera and more.
