Revel in the soaring melodies of Puccini's most celebrated opera!
Be transported to 1830's Paris, France for a timeless love story. The writer Rodolfo, the painter Marcello, the musician Schaunard, and the philospoher Colline are roomates in their attic apartment in the Latin Quarter. Barely scraping together enough money eat, these four friends live a glorified Bohemian existance, dodging their landlord seeking rent, and selling their artwork for just enough money to get by.
The story begins on Christmas Eve. Schaunard returns home bearing gifts of food and wine he's bought after a well paying teaching gig, and there's just enough left over for him to treat the guys to a night out at the local hot spot Café Momus. Rodolfo plans to stay behind to finish an article he's wrtiting for the local paper, and meet the guys at Momus. He is surprised a few minutes later by a knock at the door...it's the charming lady Mimì who lives in a neighboring apartment. They have each admired each other in passing, and this evening ignites their spark of love. Rodolfo joins his friends with Mimì in arm. Things heat up when Marcello's on again off-again flame, Musetta, arrives to cause a scene.
